For 25 years Amara travelled the world, representing her country at the highest levels of competitive, international windsurfing. Returning to run her Windsurfing and Sailing school on Jomtien Beach to save up and train for her next competition.
Her dream is now realized – to run her own School Club and Shop and share her experience in the fun and friendly atmosphere at Amara Watersports. Centered on the beautiful and reletively unspoiled beach of Naa Jomtien. Here you can enjoy that secluded island feeling, just 12km from the heart of Pattaya, 1.5 hours from Bangkok.
With storage for sails and over 100 boards, we have grown into, not only a high quality school and family venue, but also the largest supplier of Windsurfing, Stand Up Paddle-boards and Accessories in Thailand. For over 3 decades, the best part remains – the smiles of surfers returning from the water after another magic session in nature, on some of the finest equipment ever made.
SUP – Stand UP Paddle
Like Cycling on the Ocean, SUP is an effective way to build a strong and dynamically balanced body, while having so much fun you forget your even training.
The joy of surfing, the versatility of kayaking without the weight, SUP brings you the primordial regal-ness of Standing on your own two feet and essentially walk freely on any body of water, anywhere.
SUP is the work-out, without the work, the speed of the wave, the glide on flat water, the mystery around the next river-bend. It takes babies about a year to learn to walk on two legs. With SUP, on flat water, it takes about 20min. to re-visit those skills so that you can effectively run on water – develop it just a little further and you can join a race, do yoga, play polo, go fishing or catch your first wave
SUP teaches us that by remaining supple and attentive to our dynamic environment, balance can be maintained while powering towards our goals.
Wether you like to race, or ride alone, by joining our Performance SUP Training sessions, you will sculpt the body of your dreams through short powerful work-outs on the water.

Windsurfing “The ocean becomes a skate park, awesome gear, you, the waves and the wind, thats the freedom wer’e talking about – no strings attached” – Amara Watersports
We have been teaching people from around the world to windsurf and sail in Thailand for over 30 years, and it just keeps getting better.
Windsurfing equipment is simple and lasts for many years. The new boards and sails make it fun to teach, learn and play in Thailand’s year round warm water.
The Experience of windsurfing is extremely direct and responsive, yet it remains a very safe sport that does not require much room to launch and land so does not interfere with other beach users. We teach the basics of windsurfing in your first 1 hour session. You do not have to be strong to begin, but windsurfing certainly will make you a more resilient and tenacious person.
Windsurfing lessons teach the rider to fully understand and cooperate with the forces of nature in the moment. It is a study in efficiency, where diligence and calm application are rewarded with blistering speed and a wonderfuly direct responsiveness and feeling of aliveness.
