Upul De Silva - proprietor


upul
My name is Upul Priyantha De Silva. I was born in 1980 and since 1994 I have been practising Windsurf. I started at the Betota River in my hometown Beruwela in Sri Lanka and only 4 years later I qualified myself for the National Olympic Team of Sri Lanka. From 1999 on I started on serveral races for my Country. During this time I could participate a lot of competitions like the Olympic Asian Games in Doha 2006 (4th times Sri Lanka Champion) and other World-Cups. I managed many years several windsurf stations in Austria an started my kiteboarding carrer in 2004 when I fell in love with this amazing sport!

Next to kiteboarding and windsurfing, I also awarded bronze medaille at the Austrian stand up paddling (SUP) championship.

As watersport is my life, it was always my dream to run one day my own surfschool in my homecountry - in 2012 my dream became true. Through my periode of training for the National Team I travelled all spots of Sri Lanka. Today I provide a professional kitesurf and windsurf school at the best spot of Sri Lanka – Kalpitiya.

 

 

 

Kalpitiya is by far the best windspot of Sri Lanka and one of the best all over the world.

Here you find best conditions for learning and upgrading in both sports, Kiteboarding and Windsurfing. Kalpitiya has also a few waves for wave-SUP as well as snorcheling and diving places. But the area around Kalpitiya has far more to uncover: two hours by car drive you find Wilpattu – the biggest National Park of Sri Lanka, where you will see all Sri Lankan animals in their wild. During the winter time you can watch thousands of Dolphines and also some Bluewhales crossing the coast of Puttalam, by wandering in the South of the island.

Also, the Culture of Sri Lanka has a lot to offer it´s visitors. There are a lot of UNESCO World Heritage cultural sights to uncover during your holidays. The fundaments of Buddhism and Ayurveda descend from Sri Lanka. Every year thouthands of tourists come for Ayurvedic massages and treatments to gain new energy for their body and soul. The people of Sri Lanka are very friendly and helpful. They are always in a happy mood to wave you a hand!

What I do in my sparetime? Travel around the world, mostly to Austria to spend some time with my lovely son and my girlfriend. We often cook rice&curry, invite friends or hang out at UpSideDown in Podersdorf. There we will have our own stand at SURFWORLDCUP PODERSDORF 2015 - visit us!

Next to kitesurf, windsurf I practice waterski, wakeboard, swimming, sailing and skiing in the Austrian alps. While I am out of Sri Lanka my brother Pathum De Silva (Top 3 of the National Olympic Windsurf Team) runs the school and resort with the rest of our staff! I hope you will have one of your best holidays ever during your stay in my resort here in Kalpitiya. My team will give you the best service and if you need anything just tell me or my manager team!

See you soon here at Kalpitiya Lagoon!

Yours sincerly,
