How's the Phuket Surf in Sept« on: April 09 2007 17:04:00 »
I'll in Phuket the month of Sept and wonder what the surf is like. First of all, I'm not interested in killer double overhead, or big barrels. More like 3-6' breaks w/o the crowds you find in Indo. Can this happen in Phuket in Sept? Thanks

How consistant is the surf then?
RE: How's the Phuket Surf in Sept« Reply #3 on: April 17 2007 20:04:00 »
usually 2-3 feet during sept. with sometimes bigger days at 4-5 feet, wind usually changes at this time of the year from SW to NE, so you can get some days offshore

More simply, are there any months one has a fair chance of consistent surf? What beaches? Thanks!

Its fun but small 3-4ft however quite consistent. I stayed at Kata beach in Sep 2005 not expecting surf but ended up hiring a board and surfing most days during my week stay. Its nothing to write home about but definatley worth a bash!!
i wouldnt bother bringing your own board, but hire one - they have plenty of good boards to hire and the locals are very cool and friendly as long as you are like wise.

Hey, I'm going to Thailand for a while and was looking to learn to surf. Is Phuket a good place to start? I was aiming to be there in September/ October time.
