The Phuket team blitzed the Asia Flow Tour 2017 in Bangkok over the weekend.
 
Asia Flow Tour is an annual surfing contest series around Asian countries and had its second stop in Bangkok last Saturday, August 26. The small but tightly knit Asian flow board riding community got together for the event to decide who gets to represent Asia against riders from America, Europe and Oceania. Locals Songkrod Jomboon, Isara Singto, and Annissa Flynn represented Phuket at the event and topped their respective divisions.
