You love Kite surfing? Are you are looking for an exotic destination to learn or practice? The Kalpitiya area is one of the best place for this amazing sport.
We, Dilsiri and Léo, both IKO certified instructors, will be happy to welcome you in our guesthouse and kite school, and to support you in learning and having an epic experience. Our facility is located on the North West Coast of Sri Lanka, on the peninsula of Puttalam, 2h30 hours’ drive from the Bandaranaike International Airport.
With more than a dozen spots, you will be kiting in heaven. Experience un-crowded sessions! Wind blows at an average of 18-20 knots – 24 hours a day for 7 days a week during our kiting season – May to October. Yes, it sure is Paradise.
On one side of the peninsula is the Indian Ocean: ideal for free-ride and wave riding; on the other side is Kalpitiya Lagoon: perfect for beginners and freestylers. In between: The Puttalam Lagoon, with perfect flat water, it’s great for downwind trips, camping on islands and free-ride. There is something for everyone, allowing you to come in groups with different levels.
We organize kitesurf trips on a weekly basis and on demand from 1 day to 1 week.
We have a second season which is from December to March, we usually get 4-5 days a week windy, the wind pick up in the afternoon between 15 and 20 knots. That is not our main season as we get less wind but morning time you can go for dolphin/ whale watching, Snorkeling, Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP), Diving or on a Bike/ Kayak tour.
Have a look at our dedicated website http://www.kalpitiyadolphin.com, which explain you the others activities that we provide during low season.
Our accommodation options suit a range of budgetary requirements, from backpacker style tents to private chalets, all facing the Indian Ocean. As you see in the photos of the site, you don’t need to travel far: just get out of your room and off you go Kitesurfing!
We provide delicious yet healthy food : local fruits and vegetables, fish, crabs and prawns freshly caught each morning by the fishermen, mouthwatering cuisine like our ‘Lankan Rice & Curry’ and French specialties such as Roast Chicken, Filet Beef Marinade and Gratin Dauphinois.
We could arrange airport transport to our facility, to get you kiting with the least amount of hassle.
