Thailand in August« on: January 25 2011 03:01:00 »
I'm headed out for Thailand next August (late Jul - early Aug). Can anyone recommend some spots that are good to ride?
Also what's the weather like around that time?

been surfing there for years, that is a good time of year to surf Phuket but the same reason there are waves in aug is because that is the wet season, the wet season in Phuket is alot longer and more full on than the wet season in Bali it can be windy and can pour down with rain day and night for weeks at a time u can go weeks without surfing due to wind it can get good but is almost always small
don't believe the all the hype on the internet there are alot of kooks claiming to be surfers and claiming that every new place is the next bali if you go there not expecting much at all you will leave happy geeting a few ok to average waves

Try Khao Lak north of Phuket that can get a good wave. Depending on the weather many spots can get wind affected. Also Koh Lanta in the Krabi provence is a good spot. Not surfed by many but has a good variety. A fun wave that is a bit longer than Phuket but different power. Good for longboard and SUP. August gets some of the bigger swell with 3foot +
