You are welcome to Pattaya, named after the strong winds which come from the South West at the beginning of every rainy season. Up to 40 years ago Pattaya was just a sleepy fishing village, but the Vietnam war changed it. America sent soldiers to build the air base at U Tapao (40km south of Pattaya) and many of these took to spend their time and money in Pattaya. Pattaya is Thailand’s one of the best beach resort and attracts annually about a million tourists from all over the world. Pattaya provides high standard resorts, hotels, restaurants, sports, entertainment and shopping facilities. At the west coast is Thailand’s most important diving center and the east coast is also a paradise for golfers and an ideal place to learn kiteboarding.
Our center is located at the Jomtien Beach at the Blue Lagoon Sports Club about 10kilometers south of Pattaya city. We are:
– 10 mins from Pattaya
– 30 mins from Pattaya airport
– 1 hr from Bangkok airport
– 1.5 hrs from Bangkok city
The whole year round the winds is suitable for lessons. Wind ranges from 8 – 20 knots, perfect for the beginner, intermediate and the hydrofoil.
Water temperatures: range from 26-28 Celsius throughout the year.
You need to get a motorbike taxi and get them to call me for directions, phone 085 134 95 88. If you don’t do this you probably will not be able to find my club.
Hi, I am Tom. It is the only great place to teach kiteboarding and hydrofoil in the local area. We have shallow water and a big beach. Our complex is called ‘The Blue Lagoon’ and has a great restaurant, showers/ toilets and a windsurf club.
Pattaya has lght wind, less crowded and sandy beaches are perfect for a beginner.
If you get bored with chilling out the beach, or all that warm tropical water, there are go-karts to race, guns to shoot and elephants to ride! First-class diving, paragliding, Go-Kart, Ultralight flights, Paintball, Golf, Snooker, Muy Thai boxing, Bowling, is also could be on the list of things for days without wind.
