You will spend your nights at Rose Villa Resort.
During this surf camp, you will have 10 sets of wakeboarding. Each set will typically last 30 minutes dock to dock. The set times will be 15-minute full wakeboard time, so you will be free to rest and take your time with each set as the time will be stopped during rests or falls. With this, it will be up to you to change quickly and use the time as effectively as you can.
You will use a Yamaha boat (Roberta) for your wakeboarding sets. Roberta has been built from a wakeboard boat design but slightly adapted for salt water and sea conditions. At 21 foot with a 115bhp Yamaha outboard, Roberta has more than enough power to pull an elephant out the water on a monoski!
The wake tower elevates the rope to pop you off the wake and pull you skywards making the wake to wake jumps effortless. A Phat Sac water bladder gives an adjustable weight on the boat to push the wake up even higher. When the ballast is removed and the engine trimmed all the way down, Roberta becomes more of a ski boat.
This surf camp will take place at Rose Villa Resort based in Chaloklum village. Chaloklum is a small fishing village on the north side of Koh Phangan Island. You can find a massive choice of Thai food and sea food restaurants around there due to Chaloklum’s location in the main fishing area of the island. As for the nightlife, Chaloklum is generally the sleepier end of the island yet there are still some great bars that often stay open late into the night. The Lost Dog bar has a great pool table, beach front terrace, and delicious Tex-Mex food.
The Crow bar situated back in the jungle is more of a late night place. They will often provide free food on "party" nights. Koh Phangan itself is a small island situated in the Gulf of Thailand not far from the mainland city Surat Thani. It hosts some of the best beaches in Thailand, beautiful national parks, coral reefs, and water sport activities.
