"Ruuk Village's first phase" was built and completed in July 2013 by the side of a small fishing village in the north western part of Sri Lanka – right next to the main lagoon of Kalpitiya. Its aim is to provide all water sport lovers and nature enthusiasts with a place to feel like home with a minimum footprint on our surroundings.
There are few things which you can do in Kalpitiya and one of the most important being kitesurfing in Kalpitiya. More infos here.
"Ruuk Village" is directly situated at the Kalpitiya main lagoon where you have perfect wind conditions for beginners and advanced kiters alike. From May until end of September the trade winds allows Ruuk Village to host Kiters among other travelers. Students from all over the world can learn to kite surf in Kalpitiya in our lagoon where you can make quick progress. In the teaching Zone, most of the time you are able to stand, which improves the sped of learning kitesurfing in Kalpitiya compared to other places in the world.
Kitesurfing in Kalpitiya and Kitesurfing in Sri Lanka in general is becoming a famous sport for travelers from all over the world. But if you are looking for a beach life like in Thailand or Vietnam, avoid coming to Kalpitiya.
From November until April the dolphin and whale watching season starts. This is due to the fact that the winds die out and the ocean becomes flat. This allows our boatmen to easily spot the dolphins in hundreds and if you are lucky even blue whales too. But if you have a larger kite, you are still able to kite-surf Kalpitiya main lagoon and even the Indian Ocean. If you are lucky, you will have the chance to kite surf among dolphins too. During December to March students can also learn to kite surf in Kalpitiya. Our Kite-school is operational from May to September and then December till March.
