Surfing Thailand and the Phuket Surfing Club, is association with the Tourism Authority of Thailand is organising the “Phuket Surf Series 2018+ Khao Lak” that runs from today (June 30) to October 2018.

This falls during the annual ‘Green’ or monsoon season in Thailand’s Southern Region, when swells out of the Bay of Bengal are most consistent for both beach and reef breaks along the Andaman coast. Phuket is Thailand’s best surfing destination but is not yet on any of the international surfing tour circuits. Nonetheless, there are an estimated 300 Thai and foreign surfers in the region.

The “Phuket Surf Series 2018+ Khao Lak” will be held at Patong, Kamala, Kalim, and Surin Becahes in Phuket, as well as Pakarang Beach at Khao Lak, Phang-nga province, which will be the final event in the competition.

Ms. Kanokkittika Kritwutikon, Director of TAT Phuket Office, says: “The Phuket Surf Series 2018+ Khao Lak will further reinforce Phuket’s image as a sports destination and generate tourism revenue for the province. The event will also help encourage surfers from around Asia and overseas to visit and participate in this series of amateur surfing competitions.”
