I came to sri lanka in December a newbie to the kitesurfing scene and started to learn on boxing day, at first I was nervous starting a new sport but so excited at the same time, with Dilsiri, Mishi and Miram input and intense lessons I was up on the board on my third day, I had all there best tips and they have pushed me since the day I have got here! With the great conditions of wind 6 days out of 7 and huge flat lagoon that's not overcrowded I have progressed each day. On day 5 I learnt the technique of riding upwind and downwind correctly by carving my board to the direction I want to go and having the right body position. Day 8 I learnt 2 different ways of turning which made my experience so much better, I was then able to keep riding all day without falling in the water time after time. I was then on day 10 riding toe side and by day 16 I am now starting jumping!! Thank Dilsiri for truly giving me the kitesurfing bug I eat sleep and breath kiting! I will be back very soon!
