Unfortunately, from middle of March to May the wind is not good in Kalpitiya although you may find some good wind in the south coast of Sri Lanka. If you are lucky, it is possible kitesurfing in Sri Lanka in April due to the thermal winds on the south coast. By the other hand, from October to middle December is the worst season for a kite trip in Sri Lanka becase there is no wind and it is rainning almost everywhere in the country!

Usually , we use big kites: from 12 to 14 meters but depending on the days the wind can get stronger, up to 60 knots and that´s when when use 9-10 meters kites
