Welcome to KBA Koh Phangan; THE EASIEST place to learn kiteboarding in Thailand.

On Koh Phangan we have two (2) locations, subject to the season/wind direction:

  1. Lime & Soda Resort, Thong Sala.  (South station – Mid January till October)
  2. Next door to ‘Chaloklum Bay Resort‘, Chaloklum.  (North station – November till Mid January)

 

Our main set-up is at the Lime & Soda resort  (press for rates) in Thong Sala; 5 minutes away from the main pier. This location is nothing short of paradise. Here you will find a flat-water lagoon with a water depth of 0.3m – 2.0m depending on the tides. This allows for an extremely safe and easy learning experience regardless of age, gender & physical capabilities. A swimming pool for kiteboarders!

The season here spans for most of the year; from mid-January up until the end of October. Here we receive S, SE and SW winds ranging from 8-30 knots depending on the months.

At Chaloklum you will find KBA’s second location. This place is a sleepy yet authentic Thai fishing village with a real feel of Thailand – without the mass tourism we see at most places nowadays! KBA has it’s own private kiteboarding clubhouse & shop on the beachfront – right next door to the beautiful ‘Chaloklum Bay Resort’  (press for rates)

The season here begins at the start of November and lasts all the way through till end-of-January. The winds here are amazing and very stable with a N or NE direction. Wind speed will range mostly between 15-25 knots, with some days being even stronger! The spot here is also a flat & shallow water lagoon; making it perfect for beginners to learn the sport and for advanced riders to practice their freestyle moves or boost BIG-AIRS!

The spot is arguably the most beautiful in Thailand with thousands of coconut palms lingering in the backdrop, limestone formations and also a massive reef break that creates waves of 2-3m in height during strong wind days. Come see it to believe it!

Team

Hey everyone! My name is Justin & I am the Manager here at KBA – Koh Phangan. I started kiting with KBA in Pattaya and before long was completely in love with the sport, looking back now I can say it was one of the best things I have done!

I love boosting BIG-AIRS when the wind is strong, but equally love the lightwind arena when we are riding kitefoil boards. Pure silence, high speed, hardly anyone else out on the water!

I encourage you to be adventurous, spontaneous and give kiting a go, I promise you won’t regret it!

I am Saam! and I am also one of KBA’s first Thai instructors. My kiteboarding journey began nearly 11 years ago, over this time I learnt so much about the sport itself along with the different wind patterns throughout all KBA locations.

I hold plenty of experience with all sorts of kites; from C-kites to modern bow kites, as well as hybrids, foils and everything in-between! I used to love Freestyle riding but over the years I have slowly went back to ‘old school’ Freeride as it is less taxing on the knees. I have taught thousands of students from all over the world – I hope I get to teach you next!

Call me DA! I started kiteboarding 9 years ago in Pattaya – a very light wind location. This has allowed me to gain a very good understanding of kite control and it’s importance.

Now being in Koh Phangan, I am blessed to have amazing wind everyday! It is really a paradise spot for kiteboarders… from rookies to advanced riders alike! Don’t say NO, give this sport a chance and you will see why we are all crazy about kiteboarding!
