windsurfing advice


pubstud

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a sporting activity in Pattaya for fun and exercise and windsurfing seems like a good thing. I've never done it before, never done surfing, but do enjoy swimming and like the sea. So any advice for me. Where to go, how to get started, costs? I don't want to buy a windsurfer for a while in case I get bored or don't like it. So I want to rent for a while and I guess I'll need a few basic lessons. So is there anybody in windsurfing who can tell me a few things. Cheers...

Hi !

 

I can help you with that as I did something like 10 years of windsurfing (or funboard).

 

Thailand is actually one of best place to practice windsurf for two main reasons: HOT water and StarBoard.

Starboard is one of the biggest manufacturer and they are implemented in Thailand if I remember well. They test all their prototypes here.

 

Anyway if you want to start you should first try this kind of board:

check this video:

Unfortunately i've never been in thailand yet so i cannot recommend you a good spot, but try to find a spot with sand, light wind, and sun so it is easier to begin.

 

Do not hesitate to ask me questions :)

 

Bye !

Avoid Pain, Be Free, Have Fun.

Thanks for that. Nice to hear from you. Pattaya is probably an ideal location as the weather is nice.

Jomtien Beach opposite Soi 6 you will find a windsurfing club and school. They have regular competitions and I think that the wind is more suitable with a lot less water traffic carnage that the main pattaya beach where I dont recall seeing any windsurfers.

Blue Lagoon Kitesurfing school located after Ambassador hotel sukkhumvit road after Jomtien.

Ask for Mike. They have kitesurf equipments and windsurf also. They provide lessons of course.

So how did this activity go for you?

 

 

 

Me too would like to get some tips.

 

- Kitesurfing og windsurfing?

- Blue Lagoon or Club Loong Chat or Choke-D or Amara Watersports?

 

If I would go for kitesurfing I would probably choose one that is IKO certified.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
