In Phuket, near Nai Yang, but also in Chalong you have the possibility to practice Kiteboarding.
A sport that seems interesting at first sight, but not necessarily easy.
Some clubs offer you an apprenticeship if you have no knowledge, and I suppose that after a few hours you can have fun...
After consulting the website of a club in France, I notice that the price here in Phuket is almost identical, so... not necessarily cheap.
These few pictures were taken in Nai Yang, but there are other clubs on Phuket Island....

Instructors take care of you and explain the basic techniques
Then, little by little... it's up to you to find your comfort, at your own pace.
With a light wind from the southwest, water at 29°,
and a minimum of experience, the practice of this sport seems very nice....
