“Halfway our holiday we took a little break to see something of the island (another good reason to choose for Sri Lanka) and back at De Silva we still had five beautiful kiting days ahead and a nice trip to another kitespot with extreme good conditions as well...”

“The very friendly team always supported us with the organization of trips and all the drivers and guides were reliable. It was a great experience “

“Highlight was the boat trip to paradise island – just a super perfect Kite-day at a spot that looks like a lonely Caribbean island. Sand, Sun, Wind and Flat water – what do you need more?”
