Our crew will arrange your kitesurfing gear. You just have to arrive at the boat, hop in and we are off! After a boat ride of 20 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the spot of the day you will arrive at one of our secret kite spots – all these locations are treasured by our expert team of kitesurfers. These are some of our team’s favorite spots for kitesurfing in Sri Lanka. Our kite crew will help you set up and you will be ready to go on a kitesurfing adventure like never before! There will always be an IKO Instructor on hand if you get into any difficulties or if you would love to learn some advanced trick and improve your riding skills. With lots of space, flat water and undisturbed wind you find yourself in perfect conditions to practice and enjoy. After some exciting time kitesurfing in these pristine spots, we’d take a small break for lunch. Our safari lunches are almost like a picnic. It’s also a great time to join the chitchat with fellow kitesurfers and share your adrenaline rush with others. Depending on your preferences, we continue kitesurfing in the same location, or for advanced riders who love to explore far off and like to downwind, we follow you with the safety boat to the next exciting spot. As the day ends, you’d be rewarded with cherishable memories about kitesurfing in Sri Lanka.
Back in the boat, you are ready to end the day with a refreshing shower, a cool Lion beer as a sundowner and mouthwatering dinner buffet at our beach restaurant.
