Windsurfing and kitesurfing are not try-it-yourself sports. With good instruction, most people enjoy an incredibly fast learning curve and establish a solid foundation for future development. Without instruction, trying to learn alone can be frustrating and dangerous. Surfspot Hua Hin offers only private instruction, one student per teacher. This helps ensure that you will receive the maximum time and attention needed to be successful.
This surf camp will take place at Condo Chain in Hua Hin, Thailand. It is only a few meters from the beach with two kitesurfing schools and in walking distance to both the Market Village and (soon opening) Bluport Shopping Mall. The Condo Chain also features a big communal pool, small (scarcely furnished) gym, and minimart.
The basic course is divided into four steps. Once your instructor has confidence in your ability to manage each part, you will go on to the next step.
The first step of this basic course is an introduction to kite surfing, equipment, wind direction, safety, and other important information.
The second step will be flying the kite on the beach or in shallow water. Your instructor will stay very close and monitor your progress, offering guidance as needed.
The third step will be body dragging in the water. You will learn to control the kite and drag yourself in the direction you want to go and you will also learn to re-launch the kite from the water. Your instructor will be in the water with you during this phase.
The last step is getting up on the board. When you are able to use the kite to drag yourself back to the beach and you can re-launch the kite by yourself from the water, you will learn to get up on the board. Once on the board, your instructor will stay close along the beach and offer some advice and assistance as needed. There is also a jet-ski available for water rescue.
Hua Hin Beach is very tidy and unpolluted most of the time. The quality of the sea water is monitored by the Hua Hin City Council and checked for excessive chemicals on a regular basis. This helps guarantee the best possible conditions for kiteboarding, swimming, and other water activities.
Hua Hin Beach is about 5 kilometers long and during the summer season at low tide, the beach is 50 - 100 meters wide. With plenty of space on the beach, it is ideal for learning and practicing kiteboarding.
