Hua Hin is a great place for all levels of Kiteboarders. The 5 km long beach makes for great down winders. The beach is relatively uncrowded and there is plenty of room to lay your kite down and the beach opening up to around 100m wide during low tide in the summer months. Beach is fine sand with very few shells. Beach is widest in the summer months from February to May up to 100m wide at low tide. Width decreases from November to January, on occasions high tide can leave zero beach. There is 30 or 40 km of north and south of Hua Hin just awaiting to be discovered. At high tide the beach gets very small.
