Sri Lanka’s an amazing place. Like a mini Southern India where everything’s been mashed together into an island the same size as Ireland… and everyone’s sound. Genuinely – we’ve been there seven times and we have yet to meet one bad lad, not to mention the tea plantations, mountain ranges, rattling old trains, huge buddhas and golden beaches.
We’ll be going up north to the little explored borderland between the southern Sinhalese and the northern Tamil people. There are two windy seasons in Sri Lanka – one from June – October and one from December to March. We’re going in mid-september at the pinnacle of the windy season where we’ll have perfect, flat, shallow, windy conditions.
We’ll be eating healthy Sri Lankan fare, spinning around on Stand Up Paddleboards, doing yoga every morning and having a few drinks every evening… but most of all we’ll be spending all day every day kiting and improving in Kalpitiya’s perfect conditions.
