The first round of Thailand National Kiteboarding Championships will be held between the 7th and 8th March at Pak Nam, Pranburi. The event has 200 participants, including from overseas and is being planned as a showcase event both for the sport of kiteboarding but also to promote Pranburi as a sporting and tourism destination.
Thai youth have won the Asian Championships in this sport for six consecutive times, specialising in Open Course Racing, TT Racing and Freestyle competition. To help fund the continuation of this success, a special t-shirt has been designed and will be on sale which includes a lucky drawer for a holiday package valued at 8,500 THB.
Many Pranburi tourism businesses will be participating in the event with food stalls and displays about the attractions of the Pranburi area. The action of kiteboarding is fast and furious and a great spectator opportunity. There will also be an opportunity to talk with the experts about learning the sport yourself if you are looking for something wet and wild!
