Samui’s known for its beautiful beaches, but when it comes to surfing, big waves aren’t so much on the agenda. There’s only one place to go when it comes to dependable surf fun. And that’s EasySurf, a new and notable addition to the island’s collection of adrenalin rushes.

          

The folks at EasySurf have set everything up to allow you to learn how to surf, practice, or if you already know how to surf, just spend time engaged in this wonderful sport. EasySurf is located on the peninsula that juts into Chaweng Lake. It’s close to Reggae Pub and is open daily from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm (last wave starts at 5:00 pm). Staff are friendly and welcoming, ensuring that you enjoy your time here while being in safe hands.

          

Sessions cost 950 baht per hour and include use of showers and toilets. Lockers are free but you’ll need to deposit 200 baht for the key. Each lane is shared by a maximum of eight people, who each take it in turns, about a minute at a time – it’s hard to stay on the board longer than that unless you’ve reached expert level. And in any case, you’ll need to take a break in order to recharge your energy.

          

Once you’ve finished, you may find that you’re famished. It’s no problem as EasySurf has a bar and restaurant where you can order a range of drinks and snacks such as French fries, chicken nuggets and Mexican chicken wings.

          

That said, surfing of even the most controlled kind remains an extreme sport. You will go through a safety briefing to ensure your awareness of the position to adapt while falling. The idea is to provide you with some quality time in a safe environment to enjoy the most amazing rush. EasySurf is an activity that’s suitable for all ages.EasySurf is Samui’s newest way to have loads of fun.The only requirement is that you must be at least 100 centimetres in height for body boarding and 120 centimetres for standing up on the board. Needless to say, do not attempt surfing if you are pregnant or have health concerns – especially recent injuries or broken bones, osteoporosis, heart problems, skeletal weaknesses and anything that may have a bearing on your well-being.

          

EasySurf is, incidentally, a great place for parties too and you may wish to book, say, for a group of children; it’s a great way to celebrate a birthday and ensure everyone has a really good time.

          

Surfing isn’t the only thrill that’s to be had here. The same people that run EasySurf also run EasyKart, offering professional go-karts to race around on. There are two circuits, the first is for beginners and children and is 350 metres in length. Then there’s the second, an 800 metre circuit for more advanced drivers, using go-karts that are a lot more powerful – 270 cc with speeds up to 70km/h. Then there’s EasyFly, which, yes, really is about flying. You can enjoy indoor skydiving thanks to a vertical wind tunnel, traditionally used to train parachutists who are free-falling from planes. You can fly unsupported up to a height of five metres and also hover in the air. Each ticket gives you two skydive simulations, the equivalent of two jumps out of a plane at a height of 12,000 feet.

          

With such a choice of activities, it’s a cinch to have a really good break from the beach and let your adrenalin levels soar. And thanks to EasySurf, EasyKart and EasyFly you’ll never need to be at a loose end on Samui.
