With karst limestone mountains and baby blue waters at its wake, Krabi provides the perfect backdrop for the adrenaline fueled adventure of kite surfing.
What’s So Awesome About It
Kite surfing is an extreme sport that has recently become a worldwide rage. The sport involves harnessing the power of a large controllable kite to propel the surfer and his board across the water. Surfers can achieve speeds of up to 40 miles an hour versus the 10 – 15 mph achieved while surfing a large wave. It is an extreme sport and Thailand, with its long coastline enjoying different wind speeds on its different frontiers throughout the year, is the ideal location for the thrill seeker in you.
The best time for kite surfing in Krabi is from December through to February.
