An exciting weekend of activities will be held in Kalpitiya as preparations are in full swing for Sri Lanka’s first ever Redbull Kitesurfing race scheduled to be held on July 7 - 8.

Divyaa Lagoon Resort - the only luxury boutique hotel in Kalpitiya will play host to the event including a fantastic after-party on Saturday night with DJ’s, BBQ’s, cocktails and more. On Saturday morning guests and visitors can enjoy watching the exciting Kitesurf race. On Sunday morning there will be an array of Kite surfing stunt exhibitions on the beautiful wide beaches stretching across Divyaa Lagoon.

"We’re excited that Redbull is bringing competitive Kitesurfing to the Kalpitiya region. Fast gaining reputation as probably one of the best Kite surfing locations in the world let alone in Sri Lanka, this event will showcase the diverse nature of this up and coming new tourism zone in our country", says Zarook Marikkar, Chairman of the Resorts

Local kite surfers from around the country as well from all parts of the world will gather in this sought after tourism destination to witness the speed and skill levels of these kite surfers.

The race involves kite surfers hopping from one island to the other off the North Western Puttalam Peninsular during the race and then making their way towards the ultra flat Kalpitiya Lagoon in front of the sand bank opposite the Divyaa Lagoon Resort.
