Best wind season to visit Sri Lanka for kitesurfing, windsurfing, wing-foiling and wind sports:
- Wind direction: south-west

- Wind direction: north-west
- Wind-average: 15-20 knots
- Days of wind: 4-6 days a week, but very constant wind!
Next to 10 months of wind, Kalpitiya offers the huge Kalpitiya Lagoon with flat waters, standing areas (perfect for beginners - safe with no reef, sharks or obstacles) and special teaching zones. In addition, the ocean is just a jump away where higher levels can go for a ride! Also you can join our team during the many spots for kitesurfaris and downwinders around Kalpitiya´s region 😉

During your whole stay at De Silva we will take care of your well being – so just have a great time in Kalpitiya!
Kalpitiya as a region is very strongly influenced by fishing. After the first tourists found their way to Kalpitiya about 10 years ago (after the end of the war), traditional handicrafts can be seen everywhere. Likewise through the booming tourism a lot has changed. The profitable economy offers many families a new livelihood and promotes growth in all areas. De Silva is considered the initiator of water sports tourism in Kalpitiya and was one of the first to introduce Kalpitiya as a kitesurfing and windsurfing spot to the world and to market it as such.
Just a 5 minutes ride with a tuck tuck you reach the center of Kalpitiya town. Even there are not many attractions, you have the option to get a insight of the real life Sri Lankan inhabitants. In terms of progress, Sri Lanka is still behind the European standards in many ways but for this you can still see tradition craftsmanship!
