We are pleased to present Rubén Gomez Subils from Spain, a certified IKO instructor who has wide experience in teaching kitesurfing not only in Sri Lanka, but in Spain (Barcelona-Castelldefels beach), in Italy (Sicily-Lo Stagnone lagoon) and in Portugal (Obidos).
Rubén has been living in Sri Lanka since 2014, after falling in love with natural beauty and the people of this tropical island. He has fulfilled his dream as the founder of the kitesurfing camp Margarita Village and Margarita Kite School, the main kitesurfing school in Sri Lanka, by the Kalpitiya Lagoon on the North West coast of the island.
With an average of nine months of wind per year and many kitesurfing spots to be discovered, Sri Lanka has recently become famous for kitesurfing - it is recognized as a top kitesurfing destination with some of the best flat water kite spots in the globe. When it comes to wind statistics, Sri Lanka is the windiest kite destination in Asia. Here we have two kitesurfing seasons that allows us to kitesurf almost all the year round, from December to March and from May to October. With these top conditions you too can learn safely and progress fast.
Rubén likes the kindness of the local people and their lifestyle. He is passionate about nature and as Kalpitiya Lagoon is close to Wilpattu National Park, he is very happy to be here. In his free time, he likes to discover the island on his motorbike, off the beaten track.
We include kitesurf lessons in Kalpitya our active holiday programs.
