We had 9 absolutely fantastic days at the kite school.

Firstly, the Accomodation is in great and clean rooms and offers other activities besides kitesurfing (e.g. Yoga, Standup Paddle, Jetski, Wakeboarding). They also offer very good value for money (and delicious) breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Now about the kiting: It’s only a very short way to the kitting lagoon, they take Care of everything for you and have truly great instructors (I learned more than in my two previous kitesurfing schools in Fuerteventura and Tarifa). I also have to say they were extremely fair and didn’t „overcount“ time spent in lessons. Overall a surprisingly affordable experience.

Most people there stayed for very long periods of time, so after a few days we had a lovely community there, making up for the days without wind. Would recommend and come back any time :)

Great kitesurfing spot for any level. Very convenient location - you can kitesurf in the sea or they take you to the lagoon. They have a tent at the lagoon where it's nice to spend time waiting for a wind or just taking a rest between your kite sessions. I felt very safe when kitesurfing - they always watch you and speedboats are also there if you need them. Instructors and other people who work there are super professional and also are very nice, friendly and pleasant people - it was amazing spending time with them! Highly recommended!

Stayed at this place for 10 days for kite surfing. Very responsive owner, organized everything we asked for very quickly, trips, transfer, motorbike, etc. Turned out to be the best location in Kalpitiya. All our friends who stayed in other accommodations agreed ours was the best in all meanings). You live on the ocean beach and can kite right from the door step or kite to the lagoon and back. There is a transfer to lagoon by car if you don't want to kite or walk 10 min along the beach. Very nice restaurant with a lot of people so you will never be bored and have good campaign if you come alone). Very nice comfortable rooms with all you need. Always clean. All the personal is very nice and friendly. Also the kite instructors are professional, I took some surfboard lessons and enjoyed it a lot. Very good chilly place for any type of staying, with children, solo or whatever:). Will definitely come here again.

We plan to go to Hua Hin at first. Thai allow the thai people entry only before we take on the plane. We change to srilanka without any plan.

The location of Surfpoint is beside a beach which is aways from the lagoon only 600m.
We setup the kite from the beach and upwind to lagoon is about 15mins.

There are a wholesale fish house within 1mins walking distance.
We bought some fishes to the village resturant. Fresh and cheap

我們計劃原本去泰國華欣,但由於泰國政府在上機前,除泰國居民外都拒絕入境。我們只可轉去斯里蘭卡。

Surfpoint village 就在海邊,每朝早也有漁民批發漁,間中有龍蝦賣,1分鐘內有一批發巿場,可買新鮮回village加工。

可在沙灘set kite,upwind 15mins可到距離800米既lagoon.

Came to Surfpoint with the intention to stay 5 but ended up extending my stay! I can’t say enough about all the instructors and and staff who made me feel very welcome. Instructors Shan, Alex and Ola took me from body dragging to riding upwind in a matter of days. Once my lessons were over, they were happy to help me out with tips and tricks. The rooms were very clean, food was delicious and dolphin watching and fishing excursions were a lot of fun. The only bad part of the whole experience was having to force myself to leave so I had time to see more of beautiful Sri Lanka when all I wanted to do was kite surf some more!

After wakeboarding and surfing, I have always wanted to kitesurf. After doing extensive research, kalpittiya came up as one of the best places to learn this sport because of its huge lagoon. The lagoon makes it easy for beginners to learn.

Learnt about Surfpoint through Instagram and got in touch with Peter and Natasha and they helped me get my bookings down.

As soon as I reached, I was introduced to Shan, an IKO certified instructor who further introduced me to Alex and Ola, certified instructors from Spain and Taaru from Sri Lanka.

During the course, I had 3 instructors - Alex, Ola and Taru.

If you are beginner and learning in Kalpitiya, you better be learning with them.

All 3 of them have their own styles and they contribute immensely on getting on the board and learning to kitesurf.

Managed to kitesurf within 10 hours and it is only thanks to them I thoroughly enjoyed this sport.

This is an exhausting sport and it depends highly on the team or individual training you.

All 3 of them were patient, extremely motivating, passionate and determined to get me to kitesurf in less than 3 to 4 days!

Thank you so much guys for making this trip so memorable and eventful!

Really the ultimate place to chill, ride and enjoy good vibes. The Surfpoint team are a super friendly bunch creating an amazing experience. Accommodation situated next to the beach, waking up to the sounds of the ocean - perfect tranquility! Can’t wait to visit again soon :)

If you are looking for the best spot to kitesurf or where to learn Surf Point is definitely the solution. People are super nice, talented (English, German, Polish speaking) and the hotel has the bests location. You are front of the beach, it's very quiet and above all very charming : you are surrounded by coconut trees and there are only 10 rooms so you can feel quickly the good vibes of the place.
Regarding the practice of kitesurf the team is dedicated to satisfy all the guests, they help you with your gear and with them you can enjoy the most the lagoon because they go early and leave at sunset. It's possible to start from the beach front Surpoint and join the lagoon. I highly recommand the ride back on sunset 👌🌞
Food is fresh and change everyday.
Bonus, you can go scuba diving or do a Dolphin watching tour 100 meters from the lobby.

I came 2 times in this place in 2 years, 5 stars are well-deserved.

In the morning, when I woke up and sat out on the terrace overlooking the Ocean, it was fantastic. We came here to relax and play sports. Both can be found here! I would recommend this place to anyone who doesn't want to live in a crowded place!

Best kiteschool in Kalpitiya! If you’re looking for a place with good vibes and a friendly, relaxed atmosphere, then this is the spot. My kite instructor Shan was very professional, patient and at the same time made the whole experience super fun. I hope I’ll come back again soon :)
