When everybody in Europe dreams about sunny beaches and hot weather, we complain about heat and mosquito-bites. But then, let’s go kite!

Do you plan a kite trip to Sri Lanka? We do. We book a flight to Colombo. We have a place to stay. Transport to Kalpityia, rent a tuk-tuk, get to a bank for cash – everything is set. The ProRider – George has been wintering in Sri Lanka’s kite-spot near Kalpityia since 2014. Since that time some friendships have been built and every year we return we feel more at home.

Kite-surfing did rise as a sport for the past 15 years so it will be the first extreme water-sport to be included in the Olympic Games in 2024 as a permanent discipline! So did Kalpitiya become one notorious place to kite since 2010… This is a perfect kite-spot for so many reasons. Here we will tell you just a few.
