Hua Hin Watersports
Jetski and Parasailing
There are a number of activities you can do at the beach in Hua Hin. A small watersports center run by one of the local hotels can be found in Khao Takiab, they offer the regular activities including banana boats, doughnut, jetskis, parasailing and waterskiing. These activities are also popular at Cha-am beach, around 30km north.
There is no surf to speak of on the beaches but we occasionally get a meter or so of swell which is ideal for bodyboarding. This should be avoided at the beach in the center of town though due to the rocks. Windsurfers are often seen out to sea when there is a good breeze.
In the past couple of years kitesurfing or kiteboarding has become an extremely popular sport in Hua Hin. There are now at least two kitesurfing schools in Hua Hin offering lessons and tuition. Steady to strong thermal winds are present in Hua Hin from December to April. This is the season for kitesurfers. Hua Hin has ideal conditions as the ocean is usually flat and it is shallow a long way out. Chumphon is also a good spot for kitesurfing.
Kayaking and Canoeing
A few of the beach front hotels and guesthouses offer kayaks for rent that you can take out to sea. It is nice to kayak around the headland at Khao Takiab around 7km south of Hua Hin town center. There is a kayak club and tour operator in Chumphon offering trips to the local mangrove forests and lagoons.
