Learning to kitesurf looks so easy. It is, if you use the right methods. That’s why you are connected to your instructor via walky talky and helmet. While you gain your first experience on the water with your kite and board, your instructor will give you the right instructions from land. You’ll quickly get a feel for the equipment and you’ll see that learning to kitesurf is really easy. In no time you will be gliding over the water, connecting with the elements and experiencing that unique feeling of freedom 🙂

Upul De Silva & De Silva Team
Our motto is “We´ll make you ride” so whatever level you come from we offer you best conditions here in Kalpitiya to have a great surf holidays!

Upul De Silva, himself a successful windsurf (Asian Games 2006) and passionate waterman founded the surf school in 2009, as one of the first at a time when Sri Lanka was unknown as a wind sports destination.

Read more about our story and get to know our De Silva Team…

What you should know about 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! 

De Silva Charity - What we do for others...
As a hotel company and kite school in Sri Lanka, we overtake responsibility for natural environment! De Silva does not withdraw from this topic and tries to take a leading role!

That is to say, we have changed our hotel business into plastic free.

We try as much as possible to avoid waste when buying food for the hotel.

Certainly we hope to create awareness by cleaning Kalpitiya´s beach & streets!

We support poor families and school children in Kalpitiya with school books and clothes.

There´s a lot more…
