You will be staying in Sun Wind Beach Kalpitiya cabanas in single or double occupancy. Sun Wind Beach is owned by Susantha Fernando, Kalpitiya’s first local kitesurfer. It is the only wholly local family run kite resort in Kalpitiya. All employees are members of the extended family ensuring that income goes back into the local community. This is true sustainable tourism. The family has resided in Kalpitiya for generations, allowing guests an insight into the area including the best kite spots from local eyes.

The premises has a natural aesthetic and features cabanas made out of coconut and palmyra built by hand by the family. There is an on-site restaurant overseen by Susantha’s mother- a well-known cook in Kalpitiya. The restaurant serves the freshest seafood, vegetable curries, salads and tropical fruit platters.

There is a well maintained tropical garden with artworks and an elevated chill out area. The property is located only 10m from the shores of Kalpitiya lagoon. There is a small party boat permanently moored to the lagoon that guests can use to watch epic tropical sunsets.

Instructors

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
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
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.
