Discription of surf spot: Karon Beach, Thailand

It's a fun beach break when it's big enough to break and not to big to make it close out. So it needs to be a swell from about 2-5ft faces. There's a river opening so i'd compare it to surfing somewhere like Blackie's in NewPort Beach Ca. Sometimes you get fast down-the-line waves with a close-out section and sometimes shoulders you can get a snap or two in. Really needs to be about 3ft faces for it to start being fun. The water is really warm and doesn't do anything for a hang-over. Bring water to the beach with you and rash-guard for sun protection. The biggest time of year is between Jun-Aug; but the only time they don't have any wave is from Nov-Feb. Was also told that they get some swells in Dec. sometimes Although i was there last Jan and saw more surf in the China Sea then.

Other stuff to see & do Drink beer and party the day away with little asian chicks! There's also: Zoo- pretty cool. Got baby tigers you can hold and monleys that do math. Waterfalls- always cool on vacation Shopping- cloths are dirt cheap/ everything is negotable, never pay full price. Normally you can get everything for about half of their 1st offer. Rasta Bar- on the way to Hat Hin Beach. Great place to take in the view and a few beach with lunch.
