Legends of Kitesurfing Sri Lanka: Mischi turns 40!

In any industry you get the pioneers, I have had the honour of being taught by Sri Lanka's Father of Kitesurfing - Mischi. He was Sri Lanka;s first instructor. His passion for the sport in turn made all of us go Kitesurfing crazy. The kitesurfing scene in Sri Lanka would never be a reality without his efforts as an instructor.

Mischi is special. He is unique. Maya his 'girlfriend' (Apologies Marcia) and Blanka, the VW van, the whale bone garden all make Mischi one of the most colourful characters in Kalpitiya. 
Mischi is not only a legend in Kiting, he loves nature and one of my fondest images of Mischi's attempt is found on this video. Still get goose bumps watching this!
Mischi celebrates the big 40 on Sunday! We wish you God's fondest blessings and may you continue inspire many more people to come. 
Have a Happy Birthday 'Vayu-Man'.
