Dil, Leo and the team welcome you to the Vayu Resort and Vayu Kiteschool.
It is a dream location for us Kitesurfers: Pristine Conditions, virtually the first kiters on the scene, 16 KM of flat water conditions and the most stable, consistent winds Sri Lanka has to offer ! Did we forget to say that the spot is just in front of the camp and you will be surrounded by nature sharing the elements of Earth, Wind, Water !
For those we know : the spot offers exactly the same condition as Vella island or Magic spot in Kalpitiya !
Our location is at the beginning of the Adam’s Bridge on the Mannar peninsula. You will not get a better location than this for kitesurfing. We offer the strongest and most consistent wind in the whole of Sri Lanka. The sandy beaches and lagoons provide excellent riding conditions for advanced, intermediate and novice Kitesurfers.
