Kiteboarding in a Phangan paradise!
Welcome to KBA Koh Phangan; THE EASIEST place to learn kiteboarding in Asia!
Our main set-up is located at the Lime & Soda resort in Thong Sala; literally 5 minutes away from the pier by taxi. This location is nothing short of paradise… Here you will find a flat-water lagoon with a water depth of 0.3m – 1.5m deep depending on the tides. This allows for an extremely safe and and easy learning experience regardless of your age, gender and physical capabilities. We like to call it a swimming pool for kiteboarders!
Apart from our main center mentioned above – KBA has the ability to move our operations to different beaches around the island based on the seasonal winds that hit the island from varying directions. What this means for you as our students and customers is all-year kiting no matter what!
As many of you will probably know by now, Koh Phangan is also home to the world famous Full Moon party, but there’s much more to the island besides the amazing nightlife. From the many secluded bays, waterfalls and jungles, to the muay thai camps and yoga meditation centers… the island is blessed with a unique vibe that sets it apart from any other place in the amazing country that is Thailand.
Whats more – Koh Samui and Koh Tao are just a short ferry ride away, so if you ever need to venture away on an adventure looking for diving or city life; Koh Phangan is very accessible in that regard.

“Sawasdee Kub!” My name is Arnon, or ‘A’ for short… I’ve been teaching kiteboarding for 11 years now & my love for the sport has only grew stronger over the years.
From simple “mowing the lawn” to boosting big airs & intimidating unhooked tricks such as the “313”, “back mobe” I do it all!
I hope to spread this passion with you all so come have a good time and kite with the us at KBA Thailand!

Hi everybody… I’m Ard, I first started kiteboarding 8 years ago with KBA in Hua Hin. I love freestyle riding and also helping out on the beach – so if you need a hand, launch or land… give me a shout!
Apart from the amazing sport that is kiteboarding, I truly feel blessed to be part of the KBA family – we are one big family and everyone looks after each other with care and compassion… this is what I believe the world should be like!
KBA shop girl “Nancy” :
Hello, my name is Nancy and I work as the shop girl at KBA Koh Phangan. I started in Hua Hin 3 years ago and during this time I was in-training to learn all about the different types of kites, boards and equipment that KBA has for sale.
If you need to book lessons, ask about kites or any other kiteboarding equipment I can help give you some advice.
Koh Phangan is a great dive location. Other top activities include an adventure park, trekking, quadbiking, and off road vehicles.
For relaxation there is yoga, and herbal saunas.
