Sri Lanka kite school

Learn kitesurfing safe and fast!

If you’ve always wanted to experience the amazing rush that kitesurfing has to offer, Kappalady is a fantastic place to start your kitesurfing journey. Our excellent team of qualified instructors will guide you safely through the learning process adhering to the IKO syllabus, so don’t be afraid if you’ve never flown a kite or set foot on a board, we’ll ensure you have a lot of fun and learn all the safety and techniques you need to become a proficient kitesurfer.

Our lagoon is one of the best spots in the world to learn, with consistent wind all through the season, and waist deep water meaning even if something goes wrong you are able to stand up and sort it out. However, we are aware that sometimes it’s nice to have a change, so we can always run our lessons on kite safaris as well, which is particularly helpful for a group with mixed experience levels. Just tell us what you want when you book and we can accommodate any requests.

NEW Advanced Clinics (4 to 8 people)

These are for those of you looking to improve your riding and have a whole lot of fun in the process. Group clinics are a great way to learn as you’ll be riding with your buddies, learning new tricks and techniques, watching each other crash, crashing yourself and just generally enjoying your time. We can cater to almost any level of rider, all the way up to learning basic handle passes with Zac, and if we have a mixed group then we will set personal goals for each member of the clinic, so don’t worry if you all want to learn different things!

The cost is €120 per hour, but that is the cost to the group, not per person. So if you are 4 people, it’s €30 each per hour, 6 people €20 per person, or 8 people it’s €15 each!! Minimum 2 hours.

As this is something new for us, we are also offering a special deal for anyone booking a week long clinic and throwing in a FREE one day kite safari to Dream spot. €1680 may sound like a lot but that’s 14 hours tuition and a trip to Dream spot for as little as €210 per person, which sure is a damn good deal!
