Kalpitiya is the leading spot for Kite-surfing in Sri Lanka and embraces the best conditions for the sport in tropical waters. The kite surfing season is from May to October.
Kite surfing is epic and considered to be an extreme sport with required training up to three days. Two kite-surfing stretches lay in Kalpitiya; one is the Wellai Island, and the other is a long narrow sandy route on the west end of the Kalpitiya lagoon. On either side of this sandy stretch lie the lagoon and the beach. Surfers have ample playground to experience both free rides and wave riding owing to the availability of a flat lagoon and the Indian Ocean. The wind-proof flat water lagoon is ideal for beginners.
