It's A Relaxing Day On Jomtien Beach

The seas are usually calm when the winds are easterly on Jomtien, so today is a relaxing morning on Jomtien Beach with nice chilled vibes. 

The photo above includes a lifeguard lookout but we've never seen anyone sitting in them.

We suspect that the cordoned off swimming areas replaced the lifeguards but if anyone can remember seeing them or has a photo we can post we'd love to hear from you.

Have You Heard of FlyBoarding?

It's not often we see something so new we have to stop and stare like a five year old, but a couple of months ago we came across Flyboarding for the first time. 

It looks terrific fun and we've yet to have a go but we ran into the nice Russian guys at Flyboard Pattaya last week, who are setting up Русский - Flyboard Pattaya on Jomtien for people who want to have a go.

Make sure you look beach-good if you have a go. 

Everyone stops taking beach Selfies and starts filming whoever is Flyboarding as if they're walking on water or something.

Insee Tong ( อินทรีทอง Golden Eagle) Starring Mitr Chaibancha มิตร ชัยบัญชา

Insee Tong (Golden Eagle) was the last movie made by Thai film star Mitr Chaibancha as he died filming the last stunt in the movie (hanging from a helicopter) pictured above, on either Jomtien/Dongtan beach, or Sugar Palm BeachSattahip, October 8, 1970. 

There seems to be some confusion about the exact location and use of Dongtan Beach as either Jomtien Beach or Sattahip so we will look into it and update.

There's a shrine to Mitr Chaibancha on a quiet soi parallel to Jomtien Beach road in memory of the well loved actor.

If anyone can help us out finding the accurate story we'd love to hear from you in the comments below or just email us
