The spot of Kalpitiya is situated 2 hours north of the main airport of Bandaranaike at Colombo, the capital of Sri Lanka.
The wind statistics are exceptional; it is very rare to have a day without the wind blowing from May to October. The water at the spot of Kalpitiya is mostly flat however, you will find an area with waves on the other side of the dune. Near the lagoon you will find flat shallow water, where the wind blows side-on – ideal for kiters of all levels. On the other side of the dune, thrill seekers will find a few waves to ride. There really is something for everyone here!
The spot has become an up and coming destination. However, it is not yet overrun with touristic crowds, so you can improve you water sports skills without worrying about bumping into someone.
Another huge plus point is that you can ride the waves without a wetsuit, the temperature remains at an average 28 degrees – even if the water isn’t transparent you’re still guaranteed the time of your life!
