Where...

Khao Lak, Thailand. (click here to see where it is in google maps)

It is one of the most stunning areas in Thailand to have a holiday. Not yet as crowded as for example Phuket, Samui or other Tourism areas, yet it's is a nice little community just 1.5 hours north of Phuket Airport.

The Factory is a more 2.5km away from the beach and that's one of the reasons we are now manufacturing here.

The Waves are the main reasons we have built our factory to Khao Lak. Although Thailand is not generally known for its surfing culture or even waves, this little area is a bit of an outlier.  On top of that the waves here are super perfect for foiling. Basically it's FOIL HEAVEN.

The Hotel, the Apsara Resort is a super stunning beach-front resort and is located directly next to the SUNOVA board club/Memories Bar. Everyone will get a huge private room. Really...We recommend you stay longer with your partner or family.. that would be even more amazing experience!



Why...

Because foil surfing is a-maz-ing.

Our first foil camp 2019 was very successful and we have seen participants improve like crazy from the first day to last! So we are sure that next crew will also love it. "Foil surfing is the next big thing. So cool."


Who...

Anyone.

Anyone at any skill-level can come and participate in the camp. This camp is about learning and improving ANY of your foil-surfing skills.

Also, everyone can bring partners or family as we can offer a ridiculously good price! There are lots of things to do as well as for non-foil surfers.


What...

The coolest coach James Casey. James has been on the forefront of Foiling since the good old days, and he is also a professional kite teacher and introduced and coached hundreds of people to love foiling. Imagine, he will be there the whole time to help you with your journey of learning the art of foil surfing!

Video Analysis .We will film the sessions and James is going to coach you with the video to help your awesome foiling everyday.

Discover and enjoy Thailand. Several optional paddle trips are possible depending of the mood, like this one to the James Bond Island. This could be one of the most stunning experiences you ever had!

The Cost. The total package price is;

AUD 3,500 / THB 73,000 per person.

(approx. USD 2,400 / EUR 2,200  / JPY 261,500) per person.

You wanna join? But ain't get wife (ok or hubby) visa? No worries, have a really good special partner & family offer!

THE PROGRAM FOR THE CAMP

Day 1

The slow getting there | Introduction | jet leg day

I guess after a bit of flight everyone needs drink! So this day will be a bit of a relaxing freestyle day, as opposed to the next few days (except for the drinks maybe). Plus we like to introduce ourselves.. There is a lot of thins you didn't know about us and we wanna tell you. Especially The Board Factory Co., Ltd.

for who ever likes  ... It can be moved with any day above in case the waves really are not as good as we like.
