Kalpitiya Kite Surfing Day Excursions in Sri Lanka ( May – Sep )

Lonely Planet just rated Sri Lanka as the top destination to visit in 2013. In the Kitesurfing world, all magazines and forums now talk about the hottest new destination that will blow you away. Sri Lanka is on the Kitesurfing radar. With stable winds during the South West Monsoon, Kalpitiya in Sri Lanka offers riders an array of Kiting experiences.

What makes Kalpitiya in Sri Lanka so special is the stable winds due to the Venturi Effect. The Trade Wind is like clockwork. From May to end of September the Wind blows at an average of 20 knots 24 hours a day. It’s only in few places in the World that this sort of conditions can be found.

My Ceylon Adventures Kite surfing instructors are certified by the International Kiteboarding Organization.
