Great athmosphere at the place. You can be just chilling out, or go paddleboarding on flat sea. If you are lucky there will be some waves, and do some wave surfing. Great people at the place, nice and friendly and really helpful. A place to enjoy.

We tried paddlesports the first time and it is really fun and easy to learn.
Pete and Kim are really nice and helpful. They show you how to go with the paddleboard and 5-10 minutes later you can stand on the board. Cool ! :)
If you are lucky and there are some waves at the beach you can try to catch them and ride on it a little.
They also have boogie boards and kayaks or windsurfing equipment if you prefer that.

We did a tour with Pete and it was really great. We went with a longtail-boat to Talabaeng and started to paddle there. it was really fantastic. A great view of this impressive Island from a totally unusual perspective. Nobody was there except us. Really quiet and nice. A very nice day.

You can feel that Pete really likes his sport and he shows it to you with big ethusiasm.
We really can recommend to try Lanta-Paddlesports if you are on Ko Lanta. It is really cool.

If you want to have fun on your vacation, this is the place!!!
The owners, Pete and Kim are extremly helpful and friendly and there are a lot to do at their place. We tried windsurfing, stand up paddleboards, surfboards, kayaks and one thing you cant´t miss is the fitnessclass on paddleboards in the mornings. It´s a relly good workout!!!
The windsurfing was awesome. I can really recommend Lanta Paddlesports, they have different boards and sails so you can always find something fitting your skills and sails to fit the wind.

Go there and enjoy! (Don´t miss the Coconut-shake in the bar when you´re done) :)

Hello Christina,
Thank you for the review of Lanta Paddlesports. It is much appreciated. Kim is now using the medium sized orange sail when the wind is light. We miss you and Richard and hope to see you next season. See if you can prod Richard into writing a review. Maybe he can do it in Swedish???
Thanks!

Pete was awesome! He was very kind and friendly and helped us get started on our boards. It was an incredible workout but it was the best kind because you are having so much fun you don't notice it. You can kneel, you can stand, you can surf... it was my favorite water activity at the islands and I would have done it everyday if I stayed longer! Thanks for a great time Pete!

This adventure came together last minute, we were motor scootering around the island when we passed by the Lanta Paddlesports headquarters. Always being curious to try SUP (stand up paddling) we stopped in. We were greeted with a smile and told that they don't operate lessons from the shop itself and then given directions to the beach where we would meet Pete, the owner of Lanta Paddesports. Not knowing what to expect we took a ride about 10 minutes to the beach to meet Pete. We were pleasantly surprised by the road out to this seeming "hidden" beach resort, Pete greeted us in the parking lot and in about 10 minutes we were in the water. Pete was a absolute pleasure to spend a couple hours with and you could see his intense passion for the sport. We paid for 2 paddle boards for an hour but due to low season and not many tourist, Pete came out on the water with us and gave us pointers and an intro to paddle boarding (thank god). I'm not sure I would have liked it so much if it wasn't for Pete and his instruction. By the end of the hour I was standing up and even rode a mini wave into the shore...fun, fun, fun! If you're in Ko Lanta, check out Lanta Paddlesports for a morning or afternoon of paddle boarding - you will NOT be disappointed!
