Pontus tries Landboarding at Galle Face!

Swedist Surfer Pontus is a reallllly nice guy from the East of Sri Lanka - Arugam Bay. He never thought playing with a trainer kite would be so much fun let along a landboard. Who knows maybe kitesurfing/ powerkiting might become his new #1 sport!

begrüßen Sie Sri Lanka!!!!

Rafael & Roman check in in Sri Lanka. Wind, waves, VW' vans....

Family Affair - Kiting Cabraals!!!

The Cabraals were one cool family. Chilled and high on life they took onto the sport quite easily. Suvan one of Sri Lanka's fine swimmers along with his brother Hemaan seemed to already have the kitesurfing genes in them while Shaneez their mother also enthusiastically progressed to the board starts! Cousin Mark also was eager to progress onto the boards unfortunately the winds died on us the last day.
This is the sport and what makes it all the more beautiful. Nature and relying on the elements to propel us on the water.
Look forward to the next sessions in Kalpitiya. Failing which, Suvan, I am sure you can try yours hands at the sport in India! Perhaps the first Sri Lankan kiter to kite on the waters of India!!!
Here's what Shanez had to say;
As a mum of tow active boys who love the outdoors and water activities I have always had to played it safe and keep them away from extremesports.  However with Dilsiri he put me at ease right from the start with his explanation of safety and its importance. During lessons he had time for all of us and I was surprised howquickly the boys moved on and Suvan was on the board.
I was also surprised how fast he got me at ease with the kite and the board and made me feel safe in the water. A place I usually don’t. Thanks Dill can’t wait to get back on the board with you!! Shanez

Vlad, the chilled out Kiter Speaks

Vlad is the most chilled out Australian I have met. Took to kiting and was totally hooked. Do come back Vlad, Kappalady awaits your arrival and coffee making skills! Ps: We'll get your kite sorted asap!

This is what he had to say; 'If you want to learn how to kitesurf, it really helps to have a good location and a great teacher. Tick and tick. I took two lessons with Dil, and the thing you really notice about him is his passion and enthusiasm for teaching. He just wants to teach people how to kitesurf.

He was very patient with me and extremely perceptive. His tips on technique and minor details that could be improved got me up and riding in no time. I ended up buying a Faith Kite and staying by the lagoon for 3 weeks of blissful kiting. 

I would definitely recommend for anyone wanting to learn how to kitesurf to come to beautiful Kalpitiya and get a few lessons with Dil'.
