Sri Lanka Kite Camp 2015

Perfection, is the first word that comes to my mind when thinking about this kite camp I just did in Sri Lanka ! From the perfect conditions with steady wind every single day, sun, warm weather; the cool vibe at the resort where we stayed at (Srilankakite) with a stunning view over the lagoon, great food, and accommodation, and finally all the motivated participants I had during the whole camp. Everything was just too good to be true.

I had six participants from similar levels this time and each of them improved loads in just a week time. This is thanks to the butter flat water conditions and steady winds that really help when going for a trick. They learned from improving their upwind technique, to unhook and throwing raleys, or even some strapless transitions. I was coaching from the beach, riding with them and also shooting pictures and videos to analyse their riding at night.

Everyday the wind would pick up around noon as if someone turned it on. This gave us the morning to relax, read or do some work, and sleep for the ones that enjoyed the bar sessions at night.  The great thing at Srilankakite is that it’s located right on the lagoon allowing us to keep an eye on the conditions and be the first in and last out until sunset. We literally spent 10 days with our feet  in the sand and everyone was there just to ride and chill.

During the camp, we also did a boat excursion to an even flatter and empty spot followed by a downwinder, we had daily stretching sessions and even some workout for the most motivated.

After this trip I can easily say that Sri Lanka is definitely number 1 together with Brasil in my list of best kite spots ! I’d like to thank the owners and the staff of Srilankakite for the warm welcome and help, my partner Fun & Fly to help organize this camp, and also to all participants and people that spent this cool trip with us.

Below a few pics to illustrate our week full of fun and action. Thanks to all photographers and stay tuned because we are already working on the 2016 Sri Lanka kite camp which will be online soon !
