The wind in Kalpitiya, Sri Lanka blows constantly day and night between May and September from 20 knots, peaking at 30.
The North-West monsoon season from December to March also beings wind for kiting, though not as consistently as the period between May and September. this is thanks to the thermal winds which build throughout the day and last until sunset.
October, November, April are often the calmest months of the year, with less wind and little rain. Though this is not the best time for kiting in Kalpitiya, it is a great time for exploring this amazing country!
