The west coast of Phuket is increasingly becoming known as a surf destination, and it is one of the only locations in the whole of Thailand where it’s possible to take part in the popular water sport. However, for those seeking to come here and catch some waves there is only a very brief period when they can actually get out on the water and that’s during the low tourist season which sees the monsoon bringing in s with it more stormy conditions and rougher seas, which are ideal for surfing.
However, there is some good news for those water loving thrill seekers who want to visit this paradise island in the high season when the Andaman Sea transforms into a “lake” and there is a only a very limited chance of being able to get out on the water. That news is that in January 2013 Phuket is to gain a new world class venue where non-stop surf action will available the whole year round and where you will be able to enjoy a beach atmosphere while surfing the perfect wave.
The Surf House Phuket, a unique lifestyle venue located directly in front of the stunning Kata beach, is a brand new Flowboarding venue that offers an exhilarating wave ride along and the sights and sensations of the ultimate Phuket lifestyle.
