Whilst I was in Khao Lak and was seen surfing certain spots.Fellow tourists were asking me where to rent a surfboard..??..For the benefit of any TA surfers travelling to Khao Lak,there is only one surf shop in Khao Lak.
Pakarang surf shop is down a side street off the main street in Ban Bang La On,about 50 meters north of Nang Thong supermarket on the same side of the street.
Lookout for a blue and white surfboard cutout stand on the side of the main road.
Do not be confused with a sign above a closed shop at Cape Pakarang.This is the former address.
If you wish to rent a surfboard and/or try surfing or learn to surf...The easiest waves can be had at The rivermouth beside Apsarus Resort/Cape Pakarang.
If transport is a problem,learning to surf can be attempted at Nang Thong beach,either just north or just south of the lighthouse...However,the beach here is slightly steeper than rivermouth and therefore breaks a little harder...
And guess what..??..You might be the only surfer/learner on the beach so don't worry about hitting anyone..!!
Khao Lak has some great waves to offer the intermediate/experienced surfer as well but that's another story..
Surfing khao Lak will enhance your holiday...!!
