Thai champions training on Stand Up Paddle Board
Amara Won the over 40's mixed windsurfing championship and then donated a Starboard SUP and Paddle to the WATH Windsurfing Association of Thailand. Soon we will see the first Thai Surfer kids on Pattaya Beaches.
Stand Up Paddle Boarding and Surfing, is great for cross training, the river adventure trip we organised last weekend was great preparation for Amara, who has to bring up our 2 year old while managing our business, (sometimes I help too...). Not only was she happy to loose a few kilos, but also she has been able to get some gentle exersise on the Stand Up Paddle Board which helps to prevent injuries while racing against men younger than herself. Windsurf racing is physically very demanding and I was concerned that she would hurt herself due to insufficient preperation. Well she won the race and thanks to the Paddle Surfing and River Adventure she actually was in near race ready condition. Apart from sponsering the prize money for the Youth races. Amara Water Sports donated 1 x Starboard Ulitmate Blend Stand Up Paddle Board, Paddle and leash. The Coach, who is an amaxing guy can use this to paddle between his new students and intstruct them. The Athletes can cross train on SUP, especially when there is no wind. Best of all, the kids will learn to surf on Pattaya waves, and they will get good....real good on waves that no one would ever have thought surfable. This would not be possible without Stand Up Paddle Boards.
Thankyou to the Windsurfing Association and Pattaya City for putting so much work into making these events and training possible for Thai Kids of all economic levels. There are great things happening in Pattaya. Like to get your family on the water this weekend?
At Amara's Blue Lagoon Pattaya Thailand our staff can introduce your family to fun and safe water-sports that have a low environmental impact and are not dangerous. Be sure to ask for Amara or Craig and we will be happy to take care of you.
