Sri Lanka is a popular kitesurf destination, famous for both wave spots, flat water lagoons and a laid back mellow vibe, perfect for a relaxing holiday. The summer season brings strong and consistent wind, whereas the winter season is lighter thermals around 12 – 18 knots. Both seasons are warm and sunny.
The classic kite spot in Sri Lanka is Kalpitiya lagoon; so large that you’ll never run out of space. But you’ll also find exciting riding in Kappalady and the recently hyped, but still unexploited Mannar in the North.
