Review from Ingrid January 2019 – Tripadvisor
I can say that Margarita Kite School is the best kite school I have ever been! Thank you a lot to all the team of Margarita Village, best kite school in Kalpitiya. The time I spent with you guys was awesome and I will never forget! = Eusebi, Ruben, Mario and Mirella, Nisala, Rasikha, John and all Margarita Family you are the best! I will miss you!
There are many places to kite in the world. But finding the perfect place when you don’t know anything about Kite, it gets complicated.
I was looking at several blogs of Kite spots in the world and I was struck by a place called Kalpitiya in the northwest of Sri Lanka, where there is an ideal lagoon for this sport. It was the perfect place to learn and, at the same time, to tour this country.
Before coming to Kalpitiya, I looked for a Kite school that would fit what I was looking for. A calm place, with good atmosphere, economic and that had its own school of Kite.
The instructors made it very easy for me from the beginning. They were flexible to my dates and what I liked most was that I had an instructor for me duro the course.
I Booked a 9h course to be able to do what they say, “water start”. It was one of the best experiences of my life.
At the beginning, moving the kite, I was a little frustrated because I can’t control it very well. Once the instructor saw me ready, we went into the water to control from there.
The next step is bodydrag. It’s amazing when you notice that the kite helps you crawl through the water. But when you lose the board and you have to recover the kite doing body dragging, you thanks to instructor for the time that you spent with him in the water.
It’s time for the water start. After falling hundred times before standing up, the feeling you get when you get up and start riding is priceless. Initially I made a reservation for 3 days in the kite school, but after the sensation that remains in your body when you get up to ride, I reserved two more nights! Experience totally recommended for everyone. In this school there were people of all ages who joined us in the same passion: Kite.
