A media briefing was held yesterday at SurfHouse Phuket in Patong in spectacular sunshine. Just across the road, at Patong Beach, the monsoon surf was surging into the west coast of the island.
Mrs. Kanallottika Kritwutikon, Director of the TAT, Phuket office, says that this year the TAT are supporting the promotion of the Phuket Surf Series. She says this will help to encourage the surfing market as well as tourists who are interested in surfing to travel to Phuket and participate in the event during the Andaman’s ‘green season’, the best time for surfing along the coast.
The event will be held at Patong, Kamala, Kalim, Surin as well as Pakarang Beach in Khao Lak – the final event in the 2018 west coast circuit.
“The TAT believes that this event further reinforces the tourism image of Phuket as a sports destination.”
