Go to Phuketsurf.com surf shop in the extreme southern corner of Kata Beach.Ask for Chalee(Charlie).He will direct you to his friend's apartment in Kata.I think the apartment costs 400-500 baht/night..??..I have seen places at Patong beach for 300 baht/night but pay peanuts and you might get a monkey...??...So,it all depends on your budget..!!??...
Or you could stay at the Orchid Hotel @ Kalim Bay...Check prices online...!!...Tho' I would'nt say it is cheap...The Orchid Hotel overlooks Kalim reef break...In my opinion,the best break on Phuket...Predominantly righthander but possible to go left on certain waves....
Cheaper places can be found away from the beach,meaning long walks or ripoff tuk tuk rides...Also meaning no surf checks...!!
