Kata Beach

A chance to learn how to surf with a former pro surf champion sponsored by the legendary surf brand, Quiksilver, would be a memorable way to experience your very first surf lesson.  Well, at the RE KÁ TA Beach Club Surf School, you’re given the chance!

Jimmy, surf camp owner and former surf champion, along with his team of qualified surf instructors will guide you to learn the techniques that took him to the top of the pedestal at Thailand’s Quiksilver Pro in 2009.  Jimmy and his entire team understand Kata’s surf conditions and currents like the back of their hands.  You’re sure to stand up and surf while feeling safe at all times.

Throughout the months of May to September, regular private lessons are offered to all levels of surfers.  Work your way up from beginner to intermediate and finally advanced level.  Stand Up Paddle Boards are also offered during the months of November to April when the Andaman Sea becomes flat.
