Windsurfing on Koh Lanta
The best place for windsurfing is on Koh Lanta is Klong Dao beach as it has shallow water and no rocks and also no current. It is a perfect location to learn to windsurf and it also offers fun for the advanced windsurfer. The winds are unpredictable during the high tourism season (October through April) and become more stable and much stronger during the monsoon season (May through September). During the main tourist season from October until May, the wind conditions can vary from strong offshore winds to sideshore and also onshore winds. If you are lucky during your stay on Koh Lanta, the winds will be favorable and you can have a great windsurfing experience.
Koh Lanta is a great place to learn to windsurf or take a refresher course if it has been a while since you last windsurfed.

We put safety first at Lanta Paddlesports and evaluate wind conditions and wind forecasts before we put you in the water.
