Best Time to Come:
Kamphaeng Phet is the perfect place to mix skating with an authentic cultural experience.
After thirty years skating the world, Eddy Matzger is eager to show you why this area of Thailand is his favorite place to roll on earth!
Happy to help improve your technique, teach you how to stop, or train for the next big event, Eddy will take you on the tour of a lifetime in the Land of Smiles.
We skate beautiful backroads to new destinations daily. The terrain is generally flat to rolling and suitable for all levels. No matter what your speed, locals will cheer you on!
There are optional challenging routes as well, especially the last pitches up to waterfalls and rivers. Grab on, or just pile in to the support truck!
You'll picnic and play at amazing destinations before returning home for massage, merriment, unbelievable Thai food, video review, and a deep night's sleep.
The 9 day Classic Trip has 7 full days of skating your heart out. We sandwich three days of touring with one "active rest day" in Kamphaeng Phet, ancient fortified capital city of Siam, where we glide around a centuries-old temple complex and dive deep into the past.
No matter what your pace, we never leave anyone behind! For larger groups we always have one vehicle up front and one towards the rear. Eddy loves to go back and forth and skate with everybody.
This tour is for all enthusiasts, inline and quad skaters, and non-skaters alike (we also have a bicycle and e-bike option). Even if you know someone who's not keen on exercise, they can still have the time of their life coming along for the ride.
We adjust our activities according to the group vibe, but generally each day consists of:
breakfast by 8:30
sunscreen application session by our staff
skating, biking or e-biking 5-10 miles or more to a waterfall, river, or swimming hole
fully catered picnic
nap, swim, and/or hike
return by skating/biking or ride in the vehicle
refreshments and snacks upon return
sumptuous dinner and dessert
big screen photo and video review of the day
In addition, we work in many other optional activities into our days, including but not limited to:
offering early morning alms to monks
technique practice on tapioca pad or temple grounds
visits to temples and festivals
mid-session trip to Kamphaeng Phet's museums and historical park
foot-soaking at a natural hot spring
journey to a remote ethnic hill-tribe village lost in time, Ban Vungkasang
bird watching and feeding monkeys
exploring caves at a mountain temple
hands-on experiences with farmers planting and harvesting crops
village visit to see a silversmith and traditional embroidery
hikes and scrambles to remote swimming holes and scenic view spots
