Sri Lanka

Hello guys! I found out that Sri Lanka is a TOP kitesurf / kiteboard destination, no joke! It's really amazing. The wind has been blowing 24hrs 7 days/week for the last month and it won't stop for the next few months. I'm talking about steady strong winds. The wind blows at least 25 days per month during the season (May to September).
I've been here for more than one month already and will be staying for 2 more months. It's a perfect place for a kite trip. I'm staying at a kitecamp called Kitekuda. Good rates and the best food I've had in this country so far, and I've traveled a lot here already. Great location. They have rooms starting at 30euro/day that includes 3 meals, storage and transport to launch area twice a day, and wifi ;) can't go wrong! There's a very nice flat water lagoon right next to the ocean. So you can kiteboard and Kitesurf as you please. It isn't crowded at all, I kite on the ocean ALONE all the time. That's why I'm writing here, so more kiters can come enjoy this place. Sri Lanka is a cheap country with friendly people and good food. The weather is very warm, so forget your wetsuit and make sure you bring sunscreen. Believe me, you won't regret it!Besides the lagoon, there's plenty waves on the ocean with NOBODY OUT! Right in front of the camp. You can kite the flat water lagoon and cross the sandbar to catch some waves without landing your kite. Or you can pump your kite at the camp and go kitesurf. the ocean is 5 minute walk from the camp. This place is isolated. So, no bars, no night life, no city, no much around. Just Kite kite kite. Ocean and flat water lagoon. Downwinders and Kitesafari also.
Besides kiteboard and kitesurf there many other activities to do while here in Sri Lanka. There's great surf on the south and east side of the island. we are on the Northwest) look up Arugam Bay. It's a typical surf village. Over there you will find lots of tourists, bars and restaurants, social life.
On the moutains, the central part of the island, will find very nice landscaping with strawbwerry, tea and other plantations and tea factorys. This place is so beautiful that you will forget that you are in Asia. look up Nuwara Eliya. There are hikes and waterfalls and a wide range of wild life in Sri Lanka. you can go on a safari to see wild animals like elephants, tigers, buffalos etc. You can go dive/swim with sharks. Snorkel. Fishing. there's A LOT to do here. Research online what Sri Lanka has to offer as a tourist destination. It'a beautiful, safe and cheap country to travel. And if you come to kite, come to Kitekuda now so we can go kite! I'm alone here at the moment ;) That's why I'm writing here now...hate to see an empty kitecamp...as I'm making friends with the staff and owner I decided to try and give a hand on "advertising" this place...to maybe help this guys out, bringing more guests. I really wish that more people would come join me here so we can have some fun!
