Our center is situated at the Samui Orchid Resort, located on the south east side of the island away from the busy tourist areas. On a windy day this kiteboarding location has been sent to us from the gods. For teaching we have a shallow sandy bay with an outlying reef which protects the inner bay and keeps the water flat like glass. For the intermediate the reef waves will keep you busy as will the flat water in the bays either side of the teaching lagoon.
We also operate a small summer school around the island during the low season.
The beach is fine sand with few shells and broken up coral, and almost no tourists, the only other people are your fellow kiters. At times there can be build up of natural debris on the beach, generally after a tropical rain. Some areas also have build up of coral, so booties are recommended for the intermediate kiter. Students are taught away from the coral. The beach will be cleaned each morning through the season.
