WIND SRI LANKA
REPORT & FORECAST
Best Wind in Sri Lanka
Named as one of the windiest places on Earth, Sri Lanka receives windy conditions that are perfect for kitesurfing throughout the year. One can find the best wind in Sri Lanka at Kappalady on the west Coast, just south of Kalpitiya. Kappalady is where Kite Center Sri Lanka is located. It’s our home, and joining hands with our kite hotel, Elements Resort, we offer our guests some of the best kitesurfing experiences in the world. Kappalady is still an unspoilt, pristine location where a long sandbar separates the sea and the two lagoons which makes it the best kite spot in Kalpitiya with the best wind in Sri Lanka. We have two main kitesurfing seasons in Sri Lanka:
The summer months from May to October is the main kitesurfing season in Sri Lanka. Since it’s the peak season, kiters from all around the world flock to Kalpitiya Peninsula of Sri Lanka’s West Coast. However, as we are located in Kappalady Lagoon, a quieter but a fabulous kitesurfing spot in Sri Lanka, you will get plenty of space to yourself for a relaxing kitesurfing holiday. In the summer months, we receive the best wind in Sri Lanka. The wind is averaging 20-30 knots most often and is blowing day and night. You'll be hard-pressed to find better wind statistics in Sri Lanka or anywhere else in the world.
Our winter kitesurf season in Sri Lanka runs from December through the end of March. During winter, the wind is averaging 15-22 kts in the afternoon. The winter season is rather quieter but, has excellent conditions for kitesurfing. From December to March, there's a relatively cooler, pleasant climate throughout the island which makes it a fabulous time for other tourist activities as well. Visit us at Kite Center Sri Lanka and witness one of the best kite spots in Sri Lanka. However, don’t go too strong on your first day, take it easy since there is lots of wind for you to progress and enjoy.
