Susantha Fernando

Susantha is the owner of Sun Wind Beach and is Kalpitiya’s first local kiter. Having picked up the sport in 2007, Susantha is legendary in Kalpitiya and is often called "the flying man"! Always with a smile, Susantha is a hardworking and patient instructor with an excellent track record of getting students up and riding in no time. Susantha is a strong proponent of supporting local riders and has been instrumental in teaching his extensive clan of cousins kitesurfing. Safety and having fun on the water (with a smile) is a priority for Susantha’s students.


Lorans is Susantha’s only sibling who also operates KKD - the main kite mending business in the local area. Lorans is a gentle, dedicated and capable instructor with great attention to detail.


Juse is the cousin of Lorans and Susantha and is a strong and talented local kiter. Extremely humble and gentle, Juse’s kite tricks stop people in their tracks in wonderment. He is a patient and dedicated instructor and operates the rescue boat service for Sun Wind Beach. You will feel safe in Juse’s capable hands.

Sun Wind Beach is a beautiful little family run resort, the hard work Susantha and his family put into the place is very obvious from when you arrive, during my stay the wind was a little light being to early in the season, but it's still a lovely resort to relax. Thanks Susantha for being a great host and thanks to your mum and dad for the hard work they do hopefully be back again soon!

What an amazing place to disconnect from everything! The little cabins are so lovely and offer a 5 star Robinson Crusoe experience with delicious meals from Susantha's mom!

Their little cat Vegas will keep you entertained during the meals or come by to greet you while you are relaxing on the hammock

I appreciate beauty-and as soon as I arrive at Sun Wind Beach, I am surrounded by beautiful things: I step out of the taxi into a garden adorned with seashells and colorful flowers. The wind performs a calming melody as it rustles through the fronds of surrounding palm trees. Sunshine dances between clouds and sky, casting shadow and light in mesmerizing patterns around me.

My host Susantha greets me with a smile so bright and beautiful, it rivals the sun.

My stay at Sun Wind Beach Kalpitiya exceeded my expectations. Susantha's entire family showed exceptional hospitality-I always felt welcomed, safe, and well taken care of. I hope to one day again enjoy these beautiful accommodations with such wonderful people whom I now consider to be friends.

The place to be if you are in Sri Lanka and it doen't really matter, do you kite or not. Just coming here, you are immediately found yourself in it's magical atmosphere. The guys are super calm, so you also have no chance to be worried about anything. The rooms are great, shower is something special and really nice area, with everything you need, with different places to hang out and lots of trees which means lots of shade.
