another sport to do in ko phangan while... just do kayaking to another small island nearby.... for me it was really exciting sport and sunbathing. :-)
Equipment: All you need is kayak, and life vest.... all in one price when you rent it. It is cheap!!
You can rent these kayaks on almost every beach. They aren't the high end sea kayaks that you would buy to tour but they work for just paddling around the bays, getting a tan and exploring some of the outcrops. They are very stable and can be a lot of fun if you can find a little surf to play in.
Equipment: Rent everything. It's Thailand...it's very cheap.
If you got the arm strenght, go kayaking. These things were so hard to paddle around. My husband and I have a kayak at home, but it is the other kind, where you sit on top of the kayak and not in it, these ones are far more difficult to steere. oye.
Equipment: Out in from of Pingjun bungalows
Flippers is a very popular activity here on the beach. Have you ever imagine yourself playing Flippers "IN THE MIDDLE" of the sea? You can do this in Baan Tai Beach during low tide in the evening. Cool!
If you feel like you have to expend some energy and want to stay close to "home" Frisbee is a good release for a lot of people.
Playing beach volleyball is quiet fun, but you must get at least 4 persons, 2 persons were quiet exhusted.
