Sri Lanka in January

In winter season (December-March), the wind is a steady side-on, 15-25kts strong, which makes it ideal for beginners to take their first steps or for more advanced riders to learn new tricks. Statistics say, in January wind is above 15kts for 90% of the days. Furthermore, we’ll be kiting in lagoon or sea, in front of the hotel AND without a wetsuit!
