After our 6 month stay in London, we decided to bring Dom's dad, Yves, on a big adventure to Sri Lanka!  Our first stop was near a small town called Kalpitiya, where our friend Peter has opened a new kitesurfing school and hotel called Surfpoint Sri Lanka Kite Village.

Our final weeks of work in London were rather stressful and exhausting, so our number one goal for our week at the beach was to simply hang out and relax at the beautiful beach and hotel.

Many of our kite friends were there when we arrived, so as always, we were greeted with huge smiles and open arms.  It was great to introduce Yves to part of our kiting family. We all enjoyed each others' company with plenty of laughs, fun, entertainment, and memories to go around.  On one day, Yves got to experience his very first tuk-tuk ride, along the bumpy local dirt roads into town.  He described it as being both exciting and terrifying, but he really enjoyed the new experience!

Dom also gave his dad a few kitesurfing lessons, so Yves learned some basic kite control skills and then went out body-dragging in the water. He had a lot of fun dragging through the lagoon, but wasn't a big fan of the ocean because of the strong waves.
