Hey, in SE Asia from Canada.  Looking for a break to spend a few weeks at & surf every day.  
Also looking for somewhere to pick up a used board while I'm here.  Any ideas?

I just surfed Kata Noi for a week with no one out. It was waist to head high. I was also there for a week of nothing but 40mph winds everyday. It's an ok wave. The best wave is right up against the northern head land. A nice little a-frame peaks up there. I heard the north end of Patong beach has a reef to surf when the surf is chest high+. I only surfed Kata Noi though.

    As for a board no idea. Ask someone you see if they'd like to sell there board before they leave cause i kind of wanted to do that. Although i didn't have to pay the airline to bring my board home?

Surfed in Kata Noi which is supposed to be the best spot in Thailand. Not so good, I went in august. You have to wait after a storm to have some high waves but then the waves are breaking so it is difficult to surf. I'm a beginner but I had much more fun in Bali where the waves are high, long and regular

yeh i surf down in nai harn.. go in the rainy season and you get regular 4-7 foots sets.. go right down the end of the beach next to the head land.... its both left and right although left is usually better. The locals and the guys out there are fine.. its a good spot to get some rides.

Mate, do you know if I can buy a Surftech or "Tuflite" (Made in Thailand) board in Bangkok? They are made in Chonburi, but they don't sell directly to surfers in the factory. Cheers.
