About us



I fulfilled myself the long dream of kitesurfing in 2011, when I went to Mauritius, Le Morne. After four weeks kitesurfing vacation was clear that I want to spend my free time and almost all vacations with kite surfing...



Kitesurfing has become one of my great passions, forms of expression and freedom. All my life I have been seeking adventure. Growing up in Sri Lanka I was privileged to spend time in some wild places...



In the year of 2006 I had the first time a Kite in my hand and was immediately hooked of this sport. As father of two childrens I travelled with my family in our bully to many european Kitespots...
