Currently researching our options for a Christmas visit, probably staying at JW Marriott Khao Lak. The resort info states windsurfing as an activity but having researched wind conditions for the area it doesn't look like its very windy. Does anyone actually windsurf here? Are their places to hire kit or would we need to take our own? Thanks in advance 😃

There is a place called Memories Beach Bar and Surf Shop. To walk from JW Mariott over the creek in about 20-30 Minutes. Just adjacent to Apsara Beach Resort.

The JWM provides windsurfing kit for guests and we stay on that part of the beach 2 or 3 times a week over the course of every High Season for the past 9 years I can assure you it does get windy and guests from the JWM do wind surf. Memories provides surfing as opposed to windsurfing - see http://memoriesbar-khaolak.com/activities/

I don't know whether you have included this weather website in your research but it is regarded generally particularly by the professionals as the best source for off-shore weather conditions http://www.windguru.cz/int/
