  • Description


    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 looking for HAPPY people who can help me in my hotel - kitesurfing school in Kalpitiya.

    We are very involved with the environment and we want our project to be a sustainable project. Plastic waste is a big problem in Sri Lanka and we would love for you to help us by involving the community, our staff and our customers in this amazng project

    -we have eliminated plastic bottles from our camp

    - We regularly collect plastics on the beach (optional)

    -We make customers aware of the misuse of water

    -We carry out selective garbage collection

    We would like you to help with our project. Furthermore, if you know howhow to carry yoga sessions or have knowledge in digital marketing perfect!. We need somebody who can take care that all the guests are HAPPY too.
