Pranburi, Thailand

Postby captainbacon » Mon Nov 05, 2018 11:03 am

Hello everybody,

Looking to stick around SE Asia for a while and looking for a kiteable destination for April.

So, I happened upon Pranburi, Thailand, which apparently works in April because of thermals. Does anyone have any any experiences they can share, or perhaps suggest better, more reliable/better alternatives?

Cheers in advance!

I was a month in Thailand (pramburi, hua hin and koh phangan) in March 2014. Quite light winds, 12m @ 85 kg was never overpowered, usually underpowered.
But if you're not searching for strong winds, pranburi is a nice quiet place to visit. Koh phangan flat is one of the best kite spots where I have been, but maybe less windy days than hua hin/pranburi area?

For Thailand I would say that Pranburi (Pak nam pran) is the best place to kitesurf in March/April. Wind is usually blowing 15-20 knots in afternoon but can be lighter. Bring your biggest kites or even better foil board. For 80 kg rider on twin tip I would recomend 15/11 m2. It’s quite place, not touristic, with long wide beach. Lots of jellyfish. Two schools and nice kitesurfing community. You can enjoy great street food on every corner and in the restaurants. Cheap, safe, quiet place. Not so much to do after 9 p.m.
