We run our trips to a large lagoon near to a small town in Sri Lanka’s north west called Kalpitiya for complete beginners to advanced kitesurfers. To get there you first leave the capital Colombo on a motorway, which turns into a rural road, then a dirt track and finally just a stretch of sand. At the end of all this you’ll find a little kite centre sitting between our lagoon and an empty stretch of Indian Ocean beach.
This trip differs from our Kenya adventure insofar as our lagoon is a bit more of an isolated place, meaning that other activities take a backseat and kiting takes priority. Every day from morning til night will revolve around kiting and yoga, and in Kalpitiya’s flat water and steady winds progression will be quick.
