De Silva Kitesurf School, Kalpitiya

De Silva Kitesurf School In Kalpitiya

Planet's partner kitesurf school in Kalpatiya is based directly on Kalpatiya Lagoon, a perfect flat water spot for all levels.

The centre is located at Upul de Silva's Resort which also provides accommodation, refreshments and all the sports services needed.

The kitesurfing takes place across the lagoon on the Western side as the wind is a lot cleaner here and less prone to gusting.  Speedboat transfers operate during the day at set times - however we managed to get across at most times of the day.

Rentals - full kit rental is available for those at IKO iii level and able to sail upwind - the centre stocks Ozone and Gastraa kit + some SUP and windsurf equipment too.

Instruction - Beginner Course Overview (9-12 hours) - Kiting location selection / wind direction / wind theory /equipment and safety devices/ trainer kite flying. Communication and Safety / Rigging and de-rigging /Bar and lines setup / Kite handling, launch and landing/body dragging / the take off

Polish your skills (3 hours) -  For riders wishing to improve their post-beginner skills by learning upwind riding, turning, jumping, self-rescue and more.
