About Us

Pakarang Surf School is located in Khao Lak, Phang-Nga, Thailand on Memories Beach. Just
one and a half hour north from Phuket.
We have been surfing and coaching on Memories beach for over 10 years and we still love surfing our home beach. It started with Ching, Matt and friends learning to surf together and now Pakarang Surf Shop and Memories Beach Bar has become a surfers paradise, with hundreds of surfboards and is also host of the Khao Lak Surf Competition every year as a part of the Phuket Surf Series.


We are lucky to have met so many amazing friends over the years. We are happy to meet new ones.

Our good friend Burt Burger, surf board shaper and founder of Sunova has moved in right next door from Pakarang Surf School with their Surf Board Factory. They create amazing custom built balsa boards with parabolic rails and we truly recommend them. They have supplied our best riders with some and the performance of the boards is just incredible. Burt is an endless source of wisdom regarding shaping surf boards and can talk about surfing until the sun goes down and then some.
Memories Bar & Restaurant was established in October 2009. Ching, the owner and proprietor, started the restaurant on the same site as his family’s restaurant, which was destroyed by the tsunami in 2004. Now, the bar and restaurant are a popular place for tourists, surfers, divers and backpackers and is also home to the Pakarang Surf School.
Pink Barrel Bali is a surf home stay in Medewi, Bali where our good friends Mikael, Tika and Reza lives. Medewi Point is famous for being one of the longest rides on the island and the surf in the area is amazing. We love to go there as often as we can and recommend you to do so also. 
Khao Lak Elephant Home was created in 2018 by Ching and his friend “Man”. It’s one of Thailands largets elephant sanctuaries were 4 elephants now live. Here you can visit the elephants and go on walks with them. It’s located just 200m from Pakarang Surf School along the dirt track.
