Surfing, Windsurfing and kite surfing in Koh Samui

Surfing

Серфинг

Sorry lovers of this sport, but fortunately for beach lovers, surfing and the island of Koh Samui – things almost incompatible. Large waves almost never here, and this island attracts tourists and beachgoers who do not like big ocean waves. Here the ocean waves just don't happen, because Koh Samui is in the Gulf of Thailand and is well protected from them, and winds from all sides. Some waves can "catch" in the low season – October to December, but it's like a high wave for beginners. Accordingly, surf party here, rental boards can be found in very small quantities and only on the most popular beaches. Nearest to Samui the place where you want to go surfing – the island of Phuket.

So if you were in Samui, and definitely want to try their luck at the local waves, then this should be done on the beaches of Chaweng and Lamai.

Windsurfing

Виндсерфинг на Самуи

With this sport on Koh Samui is somewhat better than surfing. For Windsurfing one needs only the wind, and he's here, in principle. A safe shore, without the pitfalls, predictable and warm year-round weather make the island one of the best in Thailand for everyone – beginners and experienced athletes.

Some of the beaches of Koh Samui the wind blows all year round, it is Bophut and Maenam. The beaches on the East coast, too, can please the lovers of Windsurfing, but only seasonal. Lamai and Chaweng to catch the wind from November to April, but the rest of the time there is nothing to do.

The necessary infrastructure for Windsurfing on Koh Samui available. In addition to the rental there are several schools for beginners. The cost of private lessons with an instructor will cost about 1500 baht for two hours (about $ 50). One of the most popular schools of Windsurfing on Samui //www.samui-windsurf.com/.

Hello tal! The diving predetsya not to go and swim. Samui diving is not, for him to go to the neighboring Islands: Tao or Angthong marine Park or other. There is already a need to look at the storm and rain to go out to sea and not on the murky water. This is my IMHO. ...

Hello! As far as I know, Tao from Koh Samui directly on Lompraya to get there (it was an airline like this, read more here http://nashaplaneta.net/asia/thai/samui ... hp#ferries). but if you look at the schedule, it turns out that on the day in any way, only overnight. Anyway I think that this just makes no sense. If the island you want to see during the day, there is nothing to watch. If diving or snorkeling, then sailed to the island would not be able to dive. There are many excursions to Tao, so this really is the best option for you. But for good, better not to day, and for a couple of days to swim. ...
