Yep been there a handful of times. Good waves but just super crowded & aggressive. Most surfers I know would prefer surfing a clean 4ft peak just with their mates rather than surfing a 20ft wave with 100 hellmen ! Ive surfed phuket twice now ... once was small & choppy for the whole 2 weeks & another time I had 10 days of unreal conditions with no-one around !

ok, max.....hey everyone got their own preferences and im not arguing with that, but please dont say MOST of people would prefer 4 feet over 20 feet, do you realize that 4 feet is basically chest high? yeah its good for my son he's 8 years old, but common now, what kind of wave riding are we talking about by 4 feet? and u mention no crowd?...i surfed plenty of times either empty crowd or little crowd in hawaii, just cause u had your super crowded days doesnt mean its always like that

and dont forget, if it is crowded, it doesnt mean its unsurfable, i never have problems with crowds, infact one of my favorite breaks is the wall, crowded like hell, but i get waves after waves, you gotta come to the waves not the oposite, but then again dont forget it's an island, if it's crowded and pipe, drive 2 minutes and u come to ehukai, its not that bad

first of all, ultimate surfer, i know very well the measurements, as far as in this room MANY people dont, thats why i said 20 feet, i was talking faces, if you would know, now i dont know where u from, but only and i mean only in hawaii we measure backs, as in 10 foot wave is 20 feet, so u said correctly 20 feet is about 40-50, and no i havent ridden that big, but if you wantto get all technical with me, i have ridden 10 hawaiia foot wave ( 20 foot face) and enough with all this talk, lets go surf allready im in oahu, now, if you guys are near by, lets stop talking and go ride

dude, i dont really get it how you all get so upset with all these, i live here in hawaii, we ride big waves on a regular basis, now i hear stuff like, "i dont believe you"? please lets cut it out, you talk to any of us, in hawaii and we all will say the same thing, you dissing hawaiian surf which is known to be one of not the best in the world, 2 things happend i believe, either those who trash talk what i say, never ever actually seen anything bigger then 4 feet and i mean 4 foot faces, and think this is how it is, "OR" you guys been where the big stuff is and got wasted, either by the waves or by the people there.......like i said i surfed lots of breaks around the world, and each place has its something special, aloha
