The west coast of Phuket is perfectly suitable for surfing. While it's not Hawaii with amazingly impressive waves, surfing in Phuket can still make your vacation rather exciting. The best spots are Kalim Beach, Kata Beach, Kamala Beach, Nai Harn Beach, and Surin Beach.

Kalim beach is considered as one of the best in Phuket. During the low season, surfers can catch three-meter waves! Kate beach is suitable for both beginners and advanced riders with maximum waves of two-meters. The southern part of Kamala beach offers very gentle waves that are very good for beginners while central section is recommended for well-skilled riders with three-meter-high waves.

Surin Beach has the most robust and heavy waves on Phuket Island, which makes surfing there pretty challenging. As a result, the beach is great for very experienced surfers.

Surfing season around Phuket runs during the low tourist season from April until October with the best months being September and October. Sometimes, you can find surf competitions on some Phuket beaches from June until September. If you're eager to test yourself and improve your surfing skills, you're very welcome to partake!
