Phuket Surfing Information

Phuket surfspot

You can surf at the west side of the beach. When the wind blows from west to south west, the size of the wave tends to be bigger. The wave is constantly waist or chest high. It is perceived that the wave is onshore wind which is unchangeable all day long . So, after the wind that has blown for a couple of days calms down, you can get the chance to meet the good wave. In addition, it is also good time to meet the good wave around the turn of the season(October) because of the turn of the wind.
The wave is basically mellow and fun , but there are some differences between the points because of the complexity of the coastline..
※Please check out this website as a reference、because the condition of the wave or the weather tend to be changeable.
