Welcome to DE SILVA Windresort Kalpitiya - Sri Lanka´s largest Kite- and Windsurfschool with nice accommodations direct on the hotspot Kalpitiya Lagoon!
Welcome and AYUBOWAN!
My Name is Upul De Silva and I want to welcome you at my Kiteboarding and Windsurfing Resort here in Kalpitiya! Since my early childhood I have been living for watersports - this is my real passion! I´m 4th times Sri Lankan Windsurf National Champion, VDWS-windsurf-/kitesurfinstructor/station manager and worked many years in Europe. It was always my dream to run my own surfschool one time, to share my long-term experience with all watersport-loving people over the world!
Kalpitiya (Puttalam district, North-West-Coast of Sri Lanka) has a long, narrow and ablsolutly pristine sandlobe that seperates the lagoon from the Indian Ocean. The best is, it is one of the most reliable windspots in the world. From May-October the wind blows all days with 20-25 knots average. The lagoon with it´s flat water and standing area is perfect for beginners, upgraders, freeriders and freestylers. Higher levels may switch into the Ocean by crossing the sandlobe. So no matter what level your friends are, all of you will find the right!
With our VDWS (=Verband Deutscher Wassersport Schulen/Federation of German watersport schools) instructor team you will learn fast and improve your level easily - that´s real fun! In our school we offer a high range of kite- and windsurf equipment for renting also. If you would rather bring your own stuff you could store it in our big storage.
The resort is located directly at the lagoon and perfectly settled in the coconut palm beach. In our comfortable and family run surf boarding houses you will immediately feel at home. One of the highlights in the resort is the >aftersurf chillout area< - on the roof terrace you will have an amazing view over the lagoon and the Indian Ocean. Especially at sundowners the holiday´s athmosphere is perfectly!
In our restaurant we serve you traditional Sri Lankan meals in a large variety. Tasteful fruits, delicious Rice & Curries, grilled chicken, fresh fishes, prawns, crabs direclty fished from the regional fishers... meals for every taste! At the surfbar you can order fresh cocktails, coconuts, soft drinks, beer and the "holy water" ;) From time to time we organize big parties where all guests from the near kiteschools come together and enjoy music and dancing until the late night!
Sri Lanka is definitly a wonderful island! Nearby there are several untouched spots - perfect for kite- and windsurf trips! But there are also a lot of cultural highlights that you may uncover during your stay. We offer several tours that´ll bring you to the best places and you will get an insight of the real and originally Sri Lankan culture and history.
Kalpitiya´s winter season lasts from December-February and you may expect 15-20 knots 4-6 days a week. In this time one of the largest pots of Dolphines and Whales cross the West-Coast of Sri Lanka making their annual migration in the South. In the morning you may watch this spectacle during a boat trip. Alternatively, you can make a trip to Sri Lankas largest National Park -Wilpattu- and watch Sri Lankan wildlife during a Jeep-safari, train your Stand Up Paddle (SUP) fitness, compeed with our Resort Volleyball Team or just read your book!
It would be a pleasure for my team and me to welcome you here in our beautiful homecountry, make your stay perfect by giving you the best service and teach you in all these amazing sports!
We hope to see you soon here at Kalpitiya Lagoon!
