How it all started - a bit of history

It resembles freedom just like Ruuk Village does.

If you are a kitesurfer or a windsurfer then you know the VW BUG's infection quiet well. one of the first founders of Ruuk Village fell in love with VW T2 / T3 during his windsurf trips to north Amsterdam. This was during the time he was living in Cologne - Germany. And ever since then he has always wanted to have one of these legendary vehicles.A vehicle which resembles best, the philosophy of windsurfing,Kitesurfing and surfing.

In year 2013 he finaaly managed to buy this VW T2. And a complete refurbishment was carried out in Puthlam and in Negambo. It was not just some ordinary garage which did the work, he managed to get in to a small VW fan's circle in Sri Lanka, these fans were just like the ones he knew from Cologne or any part of Germany for that matter. Or even anywhere in the world. They helped each other in the best way they can. Its a big VW family.

And today you can enjoy a ride with a well refurbished VW T2 from year 1977. The best part about this drive is, the person who was responsible for refurbishing the engine is also the driver who will drive you to Kalpitiya from Negambo airport.
