Hello, I am Rubén, a Spanish guy and I have been living in Sri Lanka for 5 years. After long time I have fulfilled my dream to manage my own kite school in Kalpitiya. I like to treat my hosts as a friends and the more time I can spend with them in the water doing kite, the more happy I feel. I like to teach, to do downwinds and to explore new kite spots
From the first time I arrived in this country I was amazed and that's why I decided to stay. What I like most about here is the kindness of the local people and their lifestyle too. I am also passionate about nature, so in Kalpitiya I find almost everything I like to do. In addition to hosting my guests, I organize trips around the island and in my free time I give English classes to the children in the neighborhood. I also love to travel the island on a motorcycle in search of places yet to be discovered.
I decided to come to Sri Lanka because I felt very unhappy with my last job in Spain and here I could find many opportunities. Now I travel once per year to Spain when it is off season, so I can visit my family and friends

My place is located in a remote area of Sri Lanka where the tourist industry is not well developed yet. This is a real Sri Lankan experience and travellers will learn how locals live. We are always interacting with our local workers and neighbours. It is also a good opportunity to learn how a hotel works and how to run a kite school
I am lookig ONLY for HAPPY people, who can help me in my small hotel - kite school. Any kind of help is welcome, from gardening, painting, to construction , guest relations or marketing the business online. In our kite school we already have some local staff working with us and up to now they are very happy. I am not looking for someone to supplant the work of our staff. I am rather looking for someone who can contribute to make them better in the future, through new work and teaching techniques. My wish is that you can interact with them, so you can learn more about how sri lankans are and how they think and at the same time they can learn from you. My wish is a Win-win situation between you and the local comunity.
If you are traveling alone and you want to come to my place I can offer accommodation and meals. I am not going to check that you work specific numbers of hours: as long as the clients are happy and it is windy I am always happy. If workaways are not happy in the place they can go at anytime because I only want HAPPY people and I don´t want to make money from that
this workaway is ideal for people who prefer to go to quiet places and discover the real sri lanka.
If you are interested, please let me know in what you can contribute.
Thank you, Ruben
