Koho Surf, a Thailand-based water sports activity provider, has quickly positioned itself as a leader in its field and is drastically expanding operations just six months after launching.
Falling under the umbrella of Destination Group, Koho Surf started life on Phuket’s Kata Beach in August last year. Since then, it has opened in five other Thai destinations, with its latest venture slated to open in Khao Lak this April.
Koho Surf has also spread its wings to Indonesia, opening in Gili Trawangan, with another centre set to open in Bali’s Kuta beach in April, and further locations like Sri Lanka by August.
Being under Destination Group, Koho Surf has been able “to open at their properties and offer a package of experiences that include water activities and accommodation of all types – from backpackers to independent travellers and families”, shared general manager Iza Pająkowska.
As well as surfing, the operator offers snorkelling, diving, stand-up paddle boarding and sea safaris, and has crafted camps and activities geared towards families. It also plans to incorporate yoga into its agenda in the near future.
“We’re very close to nature and sell experiences to open-minded people who want to travel and explore responsibly,” Pająkowska said, adding the company works closely with locals and advocates responsible water adventures and the importance of keeping the beach and sea clean.
In addition to South-east Asia, Koho Surf is exploring expanding into Mexico, Costa Rica and Brazil, with Destination Group currently researching suitable locations and properties to open.
