The best place for kite surfing (especially for beginners) is Lazy beach. Kite lessons at JOLLYKITE school are held at this spot, because:
- the beach is very long (that allows to make long downwinders)
- shallow water (knee/hip-height),
- wind-along the beach
- wide and sandy beach (which is a great advantage, because during the high tide, in other places water significantly reduces the space for launching the kites)
- small traffic on the water (a lot of space for everybody)
- cafes on the beach (to have a fresh seafood snack between the lessons).
All this makes Lazy beach and places around it the best spots in Pak Nam Pran Pranburi.
And it’s located only 1 minute away by motorbike from our kite house, which is very convenient!

Wind conditions in Pak Nam Pran, Pranburi, Thailand
From November to mid-January we have here North wind direction (if you face the sea, then the direction of the wind is from left to right). In the middle of January the wind changes radically and the South wind comes (it blows from right to left along the beach).
North wind is stronger and more stable than the South wind, which is why there are so many windy days in the first half of the kitesurfing season. Despite this, time from February to late April is more suitable for kite lessons, because the wind is not very strong and the sea is calmer.
