Back to Arugam Bay - Sept 3rd - 7th '09!

Its about the 4th time this season and the wind looks good in Arugam Bay! Even if Windguru is wrong, at least we will have some nice waves to surf on. Either way, the long weekend is set to be a blast! You'd probably see us if you are there - come say hi! Perhaps you can have a go at kitesurfing - not, haha.

In other news,
  • Keshini is well on her way to become the first proper Lankan Kiteboarder. Thats if she survives the board transitions.
  • Mischi is currently enjoying (I think) the miserable cold weather in Switzerland and should be back soon to resume his teaching.
  • Mondy, our Italian windsurf enthusiast, is actually now considering a switch to Kitesurfing after seeing the amount of fun we kiters have.

A $400 camera strapped on to my kayaking helmet - KITECAM!

First clip of its kind in Sri Lanka - amazing time on the lagoon and sea using Faith's 8M Essence Kite. Also featuring Keshini, possibly the first local female kitesurfer and Chanaka AKA Chunky!

Julian Insisted on Surfing USA (in Sri Lanka!)

An olympian turned kiter, a doctor who got a tan and my cousin who got scared and scarred! Loads of fun, kitesurfing - in Sri Lanka. Next week we are at it again.
