Spot Description

Kalpitiya is the new kid on the block for kite surfing in Asia. it's a 3h drive from the Colombo airport and you will be rewarded with an idyllic lagoon with flat water, steady wind and a laid back kite community. Time stands still here and you can easily spend weeks practicing new tricks on the water and indulging the local culture. Although not quite a secret spot anymore, it is still far away from attracting busy crowds even during peak season, making Kalpitiya a wonderful kite spot.
