About Chaweng Beach, Thailand
Chaweng Beach is on the southeast coast of Ko Samui, the third largest Thai island.
Thailand boasts a tropical climate with warm waters, white pristine beaches, and reliable breezes. Make sure you bring a quiver that can also deal with light winds.
The windy season is from November to February, predominantly blowing northeasterly with steady cross to cross-onshore winds of 10 to 20 knots.
This is an excellent spot for every level of riding. There's a shallow lagoon for beginners with a reef break further out to sea, for the more advanced. Next to the lagoon you will also find more flat water – perfect for the experienced rider wanting to practise unhooked tricks. The wind is strongest in the mornings, slowly dropping off throughout the day. The sea is lovely and warm, so there’s no need for a wetsuit.
Make sure you don't fly in front of the Airport!
