Kitesurfing conditions in Arugam Bay


Arugam Bay is one of the most famous surfing destinations in South Asia. But honesty, if you come to this country to kite, Arugam Bay is not the best kitesurfing spot you can find in Sri Lanka as the wind is not as constant as it is on the west coast. Besides, you won’t find any kitesurfing school or hotel complex that will rent you the equipment.  However, if you have the opportunity to travel to Arugam Bay with your boardbag… take your kite equipment with you just in case! If you’re lucky enough to find yourself in Arugam Bay on a windy day, you can kite some dreamy waves. The best kitesurfing season in Eastern Sri Lanka (Arugam Bay) would also be in the summer months (May to September).
