"Ruuk Village's" Main-founder came to Kalpitiya to learn kiting and fell in love with nature and serenity of Kalpitiya.
And it all turned in to a small sustainable "eco-friendly" project. Motivation behind the project is not purely profit (driven by maximising profit year after year). Even though we do need healthy profit to grow organically. We believe in “organic healthy growth”, where the project does not have to carry the burden of "n" number of investors. This is the reason why "Ruuk Village" took enough time to choose a partner for the KITESCHOOL execution. This person had to fit in to the concept of what "Ruuk Village" had in mind for Kalpitiya in general.
Other services we offer:
- Latest CORE Kites and CrazyFly equipment
- Helmets and impact vests
- Downwinder, Kite-safaris to magic spot. and to other 14 lagoons around Kalpitiya. Overnight stays are also organized ( minimum 4 guests )

Our Motto is "Quality instead of quantity"
After long discussions with "Daniel", RuukVillage finally found the suitable partner to establish a kite-school. Daniel works according to VDWS standards and a rental service with latest equipment / material from CORE and CrazyFly.
Our kite school will be open during the main wind season from May to September and December to March. During the rest of the time, our local kite team will be available to guide you and to assist you. And offer you beginner lessons/consulting and guiding.
The kite-crew works according to the standards of the VDWS (international kitesurfing association) To ensure highest safety standards impact/floating vests and helmets are included in every beginner lesson and are optionally available for rent.
During the winter season we are proud to be the only kite school, which can teach right in front of the gate. The teaching conditions are just perfect with plenty of room, shallow water and constant side shore wind (check the below video for more details)
