Local Downwinders Puttalam Lagoon and Dutch Bay

Kalpitiya peninsula is one of the best places internationally for the amazing sport of Kitesurfing from beginner to advanced levels. The Peninsula offers many flat water spots like Kalpitiya, Kappaladay and Puttalam lagoon as well as the famous Islands of Dutch Bay and Portugal Bay.

During the main Kite season (June to September) you can expect consistent South West (monsoon) side shore winds ranging from 18 to 25 knots. There is also a “mini season” during the months December to February with North East blowing monsoon winds and inland thermic winds making kiting possible at certain times in the day.

The flat water lagoons in our area make it very easy and safe for beginners to pick up the sport quickly and make progress, as well as allowing pros to refine their skills. If you’re into downwiding then this is a paradise. The coast and Puttalam lagoon offer endless kilometers of downwinders with amazing coastline and natural beauty as the backdrop.


We offer regional downwind trips on demand and customized to your group.

  • Ocean down winders
  • Island tour
  • Vella island
  • National park run
  • Island overnight trips (camping)
  • Downwind training and instruction

We run trips with min 4 and max 10 kiters depending on rider experience. All skill and experience levels welcome. Regional downwinders are the perfect warm up for the Mega downwinders!
