Niko, Im from socal- I sponge. My home break is wedge, aliso creek, victorias (which is argued as heavy as waimea). I've surfed bowls, hanauma bay, and sandys, hawaii has some of the best waves- however so cal is way more consistent. If you really charged 10 foot hawaiian- I give you props, but just cus your in hawaii doesnt mean you charge- i have a lot of friends that live in hawaii and 10 foot hawaiian is too big. besides you gotta be someone in the pecking order to actually be allowed to catch one.

hey i never said that hawaii is the only great spot in the world, i said one if not the best, i love waves worldwide, im just arguing with all this crap about "amazing thai surf" and that bolgna, and if you're from socal you should agree with me, but bro i live here in hawaii and i been riding for 17 years, i also sponge, but i like any other good water people, i also long board, short board, body surf, canoe paddle, prettymuch all the wave riding vehicle i do hem all, just like all my friends here, its a normal thing here, you become part of the water living here, and 10 foot is big, but it aint that big

about consistency, well i only been around ventura county, so i dont know much about socal, however, dont forget now about consistency, bro if it's crappy at bowls, or kaisers, there's always kewalos, crappy at sunset, go to pipe, crappy at rocky point, go to ehukai, i mean its an island, if we see something small or flat we drive else where, and that why we adapt to any situations and can ride pretty much anything, but i didnt lie i have ridden many times 10 footers, i havent gone bigger, simply because i know if i get knocked down i will die hehe, but all my friends ride the big once as well, infact one of my friends here is the kinimaka family and they ride the once like jaws

The replies to ur question musta given you a lot of ideas to think about. If you want to know about Phuket in November. There's a chance you might be here when there's swell during that month but it's just past the monsoon season on the west coast therefore more inconsistent than normal ie you might be there two weeks and it'll be flat the whole time. If there is any swell it'll catch the offshore winds that blow at that time of year, and you might get a few days of chest high waves with ok shape. November on average still has a few surfable days before it goes flat till next season, you just have to be there at the right time. You can hire a board at Kata Beach.

Niko, you're an imbecile even to mention Hawaii in comparison to Thailand. You obviously have no concept of the spirit of surfing and what the hell are you doing mocking Thai surfers online if, as you supposedly claim, you have world class waves in your back garden? Yet another American tosser!

and i never insulted thai surfers, read better, i was talking about all those wannabees that keep on asking or talking about thai surf, yes its a cool country to travel to, but just because u seen one or 2 rolling bumps from the ocean lets not make it a surf destination, i lived in thailand for 4 years havent seen much to brag about, thats what i was saying in the first place to people here that talk so much of it, like go to indo, philipines, shri lanka, then you will catch good asian surf, not thailand!

A good surfer is a humble surfer who does not brag or boast...!!
Thailand is not a major surfing destination but there's nothing wrong with a sense of adventure...!!
Thailand is a good learn to surf place because it is cheap and the waves are small and non threatening...!!
RE: surfing in thailand« Reply #9 on: August 27 2009 09:08:00 »
oh my lord.....u mentioned cheap and u mentioned none threatning......phuket of all asias surf spots (beside japan) is the most expensive place......india, sri lanka, indonesia.....that is cheap, and u got biiiiig variety if you wanna be picky, i like thailand, but i dont think people should do that JUST for the "surf" u start to make comment like i havent been there, i seen it very clearly, read well before u start typing, if you are one of those okas then yeah i get your remark, if you HAVE been riding long time u wouldn't comment a thing. i think u know what i mean
