Kite Safari, Kappalady Lagoon Kalpitiya
/ Kalpitiya, Sri Lanka

DESCRIPTION OF THE SPOT

Come with us on a daytrip giving you the chance to have a unique experience and getting to know another great kite-spot in Sri Lanka and also the unforgettable experience of a down winder on the open Indian Ocean.
Kappalady Lagoon is located about 18km South of Kalpitiya – the transfer via Tuk/Tuk or Van will last about 30 mins. The lagoon is famous for its constant side to side offshore winds from South West (only in Summer-Season), coming from the open ocean. We have to admit that the wind is a little more constant than in our Kalpitiya lagoon. The small size of the two lagoons ensures great flat water with no wind-swell and waves at all.

PROGRAM / DAY PLAN

  • We will pack our gear and leave at 10:00am in the morning.
  • Returning time is 17:30pm. The price per person is 29€ (including Transport, Lunch and Guided Down winder)
  • After arrival we get ready for the water and will spend up to 2 hours – kiting in perfect conditions in the lagoon.
  • For lunch you can choose your meal from the resort-menu like Club sandwich or Spaghetti Bolognese.
  • Before we start the down-winder we will have a briefing with all participants to make sure everything and everybody will be safe. Around 3pm we will start the down-winder which takes about 90 minutes*.
  • During the down-winder there are various spots where the waves are running nice and smooth. Wave sizes vary from 1 to 3 m with a sandy underground, just a perfect and safe playground for all of you who want to have a first experience.

NOTE:

  • Minimum requirement to take part in this down winder trip is to be able to hold the height
  • Please get in contact with our Kite-Team for more information and booking.

Kite Safari, Wella Island Kalpitiya

DESCRIPTION OF THE SPOT

This spot in Kalpitiya is loved and praised by all kite surfers, among them many wolrd class riders too. And there is a good reason for that: Flatwater as if there is no wind, with reliable, constant and strong offshore winds between 20 and 30 knots ensure pleasure for all kiter levels. Wella Island is a huge sandbank with unlimited room for kiting. There are no palm trees, buildings or other obstacles in the way, so the wind can blow really constant and nice from the open ocean. That is why Wella Island really deserves the name “Dream spot in Kalpitiya”

  • We will take a fisher boat (having the required licenses to transport guests) approximately 45 to 60 mins up North of Ruuk Village to reach the spot.
