Kitesurfing school in Phuket - Nai Yang beach
This spot is great for kitesurfing from May to October as it is situated in a beautiful quiet bay, easily accessible from Phuket International Airport. Nai Yang beach offers an amazing relaxing atmosphere, where you can practice in a flat water lagoon. This location is ideal for beginners learning the basic steps. The other part of the bay is suitable for advanced kiters. There are two beautiful reef breaks and a sand break for good clean waves.

Kitesurfing school in Phuket - Chalong beach
The Chalong location in Phuket is good for kitesurfing from November to March. The bay of Chalong is a nice and fun kitesurfing spot that offers flat water, making lessons much easier. The thermal wind in Chalong is usually perfect in the morning. The wind blows strongly throughout the day, making it perfect for people who want to experience kitesurfing for the first time. Phuket is one of the best kitesurfing destinations in the whole of Thailand. Here you'll find crystal clear waters & great wind conditions all year round! Enjoy the ultimate kitesurfing experience with the certified team!

KBA doesn’t want poor equipment to let you down, so they invest in new kites of the best quality every year. Being such a large school they have lots of gear, so they can match the kite and board to your weight and kitesurfing ability - optimising your time in the water.

At the end of each kitesurfing lesson you will receive an IKO card.
