All of you who were lucky enough to visit Sri Lanka before know, that Sri Lanka is different. Wilder, more unspoiled, and more challenging. A trip to Sri Lanka is more like a little adventure than a classical chill out holiday.
The Kiteboarding conditions however in the lagoon of Kalpitiya are out of this world and just perfect to either learn Kiting or improve whatever Move you´re practising on!
The DE SILVA WINDRESORT is based right on the best spot over there, offering everything, from stylish accommodation, great food, equipment storage, etc. and is therefore the perfect partner for our Watersports Training Event.
Think of a Lagoon, a big Lagoon, well, think of the biggest Lagoon you can imagine and you´ll get an idea of Kalpitiya. Our home base during the Event will be the De Silva Windresort right on the spot, right on the water.
The experienced riders amongst you will start right in front of the Center while the beginner lessons will take place a little further out on a Sandbank where we will get shuttled by boat and have all the space you could wish for to practise. Freeriders, as well as Freestylers or Strapless Riders will find insane conditions, flat, shallow 28°C to 30°C warm water and constant winds. Between December and February the wind is blowing averagely 80% a week with 15-20 knots from the north west.
Besides the Lagoon in front of the Resort, there are of course other spots to discover as well. During our stay we will make sure you´re able the discover the whole beauty and all possibilities this place has to offer.

On a typical day in Kalpitya you will wake up with the sounds of different animals out of the forrest arount. It is just a few meters from your apartment to the beach and we will start the day with a session of Yoga or stretching. During breakfast we will decide which adventure will wait for us that day and if conditions are good, we will start with a first kite session in the lagune.
After Lunch in the Resort we will pack the boat with our kite gear and shuttle 30 min. over to a little Island near by - Paradise Island. . This name is given to the island for a reason, you will find out about that by yourself ;) After discovering the Paradise, we will start our downwinder back along the stunning, wild and beautiful coast.
For sunset we will have a cocktail at the hotelbar before leaving with a TucTuc, the local means of transportation, to have dinner together.
