The Director of the Regional Marine Office in Prachuab Khirikhan Mr. Suriya Kophatta, the Hua Hin Police Office, the Hua Hin Tourist Police Office, the Hua Hin Municipality and the District Office of Hua Hin have recently met with local kiteboard business owners to consider safe practices for kiteboarding on Hua Hin beaches.
The current kiteboard zone is between Soi Hua Hin 67 and 77, covering a beach frontage of around 1 kilometre. Kiteboarding should only take place 50 metres out from the low water mark so that other beach activities are not affected. The kiteboard business owners need to ask for permission from the land owners then inform the authorities. The Department of Marine Transport will formulate an area map and the GPS locations.
