Thailand kitesurfing school Pattaya
7 months of daily thermals
Welcome to Pattaya, named after the strong winds which come from the South West at the beginning of every rainy season. Pattaya, up until 40 years ago was just a sleepy fishing village, the Vietnam war changed this. America sent soldiers to build the air base at U Tapao (40km sout of Pattaya) and many of these took to spending their leisure time and money in Pattaya. Today Pattaya is Thailand's premier beach resort and attracts annually more than a million tourists from all over the world. Pattaya provides high standard hotels, restaurants, sports, entertainment and shopping facilities. The resort is Thailand's most important diving center and the east coast is also a paradise for golfers and an ideal place to learn kiteboarding.
No wind days
If you get bored with chilling out the beach, or all that warm tropical water, there are go-karts to race, elephants to ride and guns to shoot!

All about the wind
Our school is located about 10km out of Pattaya on south Jomtien beach. The main beaches in pattaya are crowded with jet skis, swimmers and boats but our main location in the Blue Lagoon Watersports Club is for wind powered sports only. Not a single annoying jetski to be seen, or heard. The only powered vessels allowed are our 2 rescue boats which we also use for teaching.
Our beach faces directly west giving us nice cross on winds from the north west in high season (dry winter season) and cross on winds from the south west in low season. Water temperature is around 26 degrees Celsius year round. A rash guard is all you need along with plenty of sun protection.
We have no nasty surprises in the water. During the wind season there are no jellyfish or sea urchins and there has never been a shark attack recorded in thailand. Our beach is sand so booties are not required. Click here for kiteboarding school in Phuket information
