If you visit Koh Lanta, I would definitely suggest a visit to this place.
We were the 'not so courageous tourists' and wanted to enjoy some bit of water sports. Jo made us feel comfortable and even took our snaps while we splashed around.
Sam and Jo are very amiable.

My husband and I tried out the stand up paddle boarding for the first time. We had a great time, the owners Sam and Jo were fantastic, and the waves were just right to learn on and have some fun. Highly recommend these guys. Totally professional and knowledgeable, with good equipment (also surf boards, boogy boards, wind surfers & kayaks). Nice safe beach, close to Saladan.

We went on Koh Lanta during low season and were very happy to find this great place for our few days on this island. As soon as we met Joe and Sam we were conquered. They are so friendly and welcoming.

We took surfing lessons since it was our first time. Sam was an excellent instructor, we couldn't have better. From safety lessons to basic lessons, he managed how to get us surfing! Once in Bali, we were even more grateful for those lessons because of the huge waves (for beginners) and all the surfers in the water at the same time. Koh Lanta is a much better place for beginners. As soon as we were better, Joe took pictures of us on the waves. Those are very good memories.

We spent 2 wonderful days with Joe and Sam and we are very thankful. If you go to this beautiful piece of country I suggest you go give them a visit. Especially since you have the waves to yourself.

If you're wanting to do some watersports in Lanta - there is only one place to go and this is it. Great choice, beautiful safe and clean beach, and not to mention the help, good advice and warm welcome.
We had not planned any watersports as we get plenty at home but by just driving around lanta we came across Sam & Jo's sign.... Instinctively we followed the arrows and to never regret it. If we are back in Thailand this will be the first stopover. Great fun for the whole family .
A must stop in Lanta. Enjoy !!!

Thank you so much to Sam and jo for their good advices and patience!
Not so easy but you fund the good words and good way to explain me how to balance, get ready, how to paddle (and not like a 'girl'!) and how to stand up!!!
So funny!
And thanks also for your thaï food tips!
