    Description

    Hi, I'm Rubén, a Spanish guy and I've been living in Sri Lanka for 10 years. After a long time, I have fulfilled my dream of running my own kitesurfing school in Kalpitiya.

    I like to treat my hosts like friends and the more time I can spend with them in the water kitesurfing, the happier I feel. I like to teach, do downwinds trips and explore new kite spots

    From the first time I arrived in this country, I was amazed and that is why I decided to stay. What I like most about here is the friendliness of the local people and their lifestyle as well. I am also passionate about nature, that's why 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 spare time, I teach English to the children of the neighborhood. I also love touring the island on a motorcycle in search of places yet to be discovered.

    I decided to come to Sri Lanka because I was very unhappy with my last job in Spain and here I could find many opportunities. Now I travel once a year to Spain when it's low season, so I can visit my family and friends.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Our kite school is located in a remote area of ​​Sri Lanka. We are located in a very traditional and humble neighborhood. We are always interacting with our local workers and neighbors and you can learn a lot from them. We would like you to interact with our local community so that you can learn more about what Sri Lankans are like and how they think, and at the same time, they can also learn something from you. Our wish is a win-win situation between you and the local community.

    It is also a good opportunity to learn the daily operation of a kitesurf school and how to run a kitesurfing camp. The more you get involved, the more you can learn. We also have bicycles that you can use for free to get around the area. Please note that we cannot exchange this volunteer project for kitesurfing lessons.
