Windsurfing has become one of Thailand 's most popular water sports in the last two decades, and it is practiced all over Thailand 's beaches. You can learn to windsurf on all major beaches in Phuket, Samui, Pattaya and Krabi, as well as on islands of Ko Tao and Ko Chang. Pattaya and Phuket have had turns at hosting the Siam World Cup championships, part of the Asian World Cup Series, which are held in January every year.
Conditions for windsurfing in Thailand are superb lots of clean beaches and clean water, with long stretches free of rocks or other hazards. Winds are predictable in season and conditions depending on the time of day and the season, oblige everyone from rank beginner to expert. Best of all, in the minds of many enthusiasts from colder climates, you don't need a wetsuit, what with water temperatures of between 26° and 28°C all year around.
Windsurfing is one of the most exhilarating sports in the world. Furthermore, and appearances to the contrary, it is easy to learn. At least it can be easy to learn - it is worth asking an adept to give you a few tips. While trying to learn by trial and error may be frustrating, simple awareness of a few basic principles can make getting started quite simple. At the same time - and this is part of itsattraction - it is always possible to learn new tricks, to get better.
Once you have mastered the basics, you'll find boards and sails available everywhere. While you need wind to windsurf, you can get too much of a good thing. Don't go out to sea if the weather is threatening to turn stormy. You should wear a life jacket at all times. Beware of boats and swimmers on crowded stretches of water, especially when you are still learning how to handle your board and sail. It is easy to forget about the sun with the wind on your face, but it is especially strong when reflecting off the water all around you. So wear protective sunblock.
