Hey all!
The Rascals Kite Resort have opened in December their new camp right on the lagoon, it's the only kite resort which can offer a swimming pool, choice of aircon rooms AND true doorstep kiting, i.e. get up, pump your kite and kite right in front of the premises in the Lagoon. We sometimes even teach here, when we are lazy. It is also THE ONLY kite resort with a proper boat for trips, equipped with a 115 HP Mercury Engine and a real speedboat. You don't get soaked and it doesnt take AT LEAST 1hr 30 min to get to the Vella Island (if not more). Moreover no need for costly and TIME CONSUMING boat shuttles, truck shuttles etc, we do REAL doorstep kiting on our flat water spot. For all this info check out www.rascalskiteresort.com and our TripAdvisor REAL reviews.
Have fun!

@Mede,
Its been ages since one of us dropped in here :-)
Just realized that the last input from you was not answered. Was googling for something else, when this post popped up :-)

To a certain extent you are right , during the summer month not every kiter is able to start from Ruuk Village entrance, but almost after 8 kiting seasons, we can say that one can launch south of our entrance. And a down winder is almost always feasible too ( during May till Oct).
We installed the first ever WindGuru station in Sri lanka last year 2016 during summer: https://www.windguru.cz/station/479

And you can check the wind LIVE, since the station is fixed to our Entrance Gate, one should actually add around 8 - 10 knots to derive at the right reading ( during May - Oct ) and 3 - 5 during December to March time frame.

Here is our from "Bed to Board" short clip taken few season back : https://vimeo.com/119422659

And this is our latest video, from above, we have treid to capture a typical day in our small ( 9000 sqm ) village with 8 wooden cabanas by the water : https://vimeo.com/220115586

@Mde Hey by the way, not far from your place in madurankuliya Villa, we have a small coconut plot ( around 5000 sqm), where we are going to have few cabanas in December. The beach front at your place is just amazing. Soon we will be neighbours too. Looking forward to meet you in person.

@ Ruuk : Amazing news :) Looking forward to some fellow kiters on our beach!

Btw, I'm in Kandathoduwa at the moment. Last week, we had some quite epic surf conditions with nice, strong wind :D

@ Ruuk : in a week, a friend of mine will join us. He's an intermediate, so I want to take him to a lagoon. I always wonder if there are spots on Puttalam lagoon that work for kiting. Do you know a spot close to Palavi? Otherwise, will head to Kappalady lagoon with him.

Hey Leo,
I know the Kalpitiya lagoon and Kapalady lagoon of course...
Actualy, you and I were throwing Kiteloops together on Kalpitiya lagoon back in 2012 ;)

But I thought there might be a place on Puttalam Lagoon suitable for kitesurfing as well, that's why I was asking.
