Kiting in Thailand

Postby MoJoKiter » Fri Apr 09, 2010 6:10 pm

I'm headed to Thailand in June for our honeymoon. Spending a few days just north of Phuket on Nai Yang beach. I hear it's the best spot for kiting that time of year. Does anyone have any experience there?

Just came back from the PKRA comp area - Huahin and Pranburi, about 200km SOUTH of Bangkok ... had one day of 15-20 knots, many days of 10-15 so pack a big board and a big kite unless you're a tiny little person.

According to the charts on Kitezoon? kitevoon? should still be ok till the end of April in Thailand ...

As stated take a big kite, you should get some wind then.
