phuket for first time visitor,when to surf?

« on: October 24 2009 14:10:00 »

Just wondering about the what the surf is like in either January or April.I'm a longboarder.
Never been to Thai before.
not expecting a great deal but just want to have some warm weather fun while there.
Will be staying at Patong beach.
Do you think I should I take my own board or hire when I get there?

There probably won't be any swell there in Jan but April should be coming right. Season is normally May-Oct. Longboards are a travel hassle and you should be able to rent there. Check out Kata beach:
