If you're an adrenaline junkie, kitesurfing is one of the coolest ways to indulge yourself in Sri Lanka - and Kalpitiya is the place to do it. We went to Kalpitiya recently, and although we didn't try it out ourselves (we'll tell you why), we spent the afternoon with an instructor who gave us a step-by-step guide to this extreme sport.
With more than a dozen spots around Kalpitiya, you will be kiting in heaven. We have Flatwater, Waves, Lagoon. Experience uncrowded sessions! Wind blows at an average of 18-20 knots almost every day during our Summer Season – May to October. We also have a Winter Season - December to March when we have afternoon winds - Winter is still 28 Degrees!
On one side of the peninsula is the Indian Ocean: ideal for free-ride and wave riding. On the other side is Kalpitiya Lagoon, a perfect spot for beginners and freestylers. In between: Puttalam Lagoon, with perfect flat water, it’s great for downwind trips and kite safari, freeride and camping on islands. There is something for everyone, allowing you to come in groups with different levels. We are the best in organized Kite Trips which happen many times a week.
