What’s So Awesome About It

Kitesurfing 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 kitesurfing in Krabi is from December through to February.

What’s The Catch

Krabi isn’t the breeziest of places, hence, it is best to check wind conditions before booking lessons. Kitesurfing is a solo activity and requires physical fitness.

Things To Keep In Mind

It is recommended that guests do some training sessions beforehand as it can be quite dangerous. Kitesurfing requires a high level of physical fitness.
