Mega Downwinders/Camping

We offer guided downwind trips in the Puttalam lagoon with support boat.

We also organize multi day camping/downwind trips in the Puttalam Lagoon and also 
long distance kite trips like Kalpitiya-Mannar and Mannar-Jaffna.
These trips can be up to 150 km total or more.

In the 2016 kite season our team was the first on record to complete the 300 km downwinder from Kalpitiya to Jaffna over 3 days. This trip was accomplished with lots of pre-planning and organizing, we would camp on wild beaches at the end of each day with support from our 4x4 jeep and driver. As a result our journey was featured in German “Kiteboarding” Magazine and the English “Kiteworld” Magazine as well as local newspapers.
 
We now offer these type of long distance downwind/camping trips in a customized form for you and your team with the option of boat support.

For the 2019 Kite Season we will be running the Kalpitiya to Mannar 2 day downwinder.

The team will start in the Dutch Bay/Kalpitiya area near the Islands and mangroves and head North towards Mannar, trip duration is 2 days. All trips will be led by guides who are very experienced in navigating the North West. All guides are IKO certified and trained for emergency medical rescue. The downwind team is supported full time by our land support crew who are always one step ahead of us and part time by experienced boat support crew. Along the way we make many stops to rest, check on gear, and have some refreshments.
 
After the first day we make camp in a jungle location next to the beach and celebrate. During the first day we cover a majority of the downwind distance leaving an easy run to Mannar on the second day. The team then has the option to stay the night in the Mannar area or head back to Kalpitiya.
