Surfing in Phuket

I live in Bangkok and have surfed once in Bali for a day. I am interested in surfing in Phuket when I go down in about a week or so. Are the waves any good? Is there a surf school around? Does anyone have the time to just help me out a little on a board?
Thanks!

No the waves are not good but if your a beginner you will enjoy yourself however saying that the waves could be good with a good swell its jsut that kata beach is such a short ride oh well. Never seen it at six foot though

Go to the saltwater-dreaming dot com site to get some good information on and many pictures of the surf beaches around Phuket

I was there like 10 years ago during june. I had only surfed a few days by then so I might have perceived the waves to be bigger than they actually where but the beach (Karon beach) was closed due to the currents implying the waves must have been at least more than ripples. From my memories I would guess something like 4ft.

Anyway, we had heaps of fun bodysurfing them! Without body boards of course since such things where nowhere to be found in PHuket 10 years ago...

Check out <a href='www.phuket-hotel-booking.com/things-to-do/surfing/'>Surfing in Phuket</a>. They have info about the Phuket Surfing Season and Phuket's Best Surfspots. Cheers.

RE: Surfing in Phuket

best to use the website in the first post....more detailed info and surfing pictures of the area....... phuket hotel booking com seems to be a paraphrased version of Saltwater website, which many websites are these days
