|Find the best surf spots||
Biggest waves happen in April to November. Normally the swell is the result of the S.W., monsoon blowing like hell for 3 - 4 days. When the wind drops, the sea glasses off and you get 1 - 2 mtr (max) waves for a couple of days.You can get a ground swell as the fetch around the Andaman sea is just too small. If there's a typhoon situated up in the Bay of Bengal and it's far enough away so it doesn't affect Phuket's weather then there can be some nice clean waves, but that's a fairly rear occurrence. The best breaks are Kalim Reef (righthander) and Karon Beach which is best surfed close to high tide. I remember reading an article in a magazine a few years ago which mentioned the biggest waves along Thailands west coast can be found at an Island called Koh Kradan. It's situated down near Trang and it sits out in deep water.
You can have an absolutely brilliant time. I've spent literally hundreds of hours on my local reef surfing alone or with just a few mates, enjoying the warm water and stunning scenery - true soul surfing even in the tourist jungle that is Phuket.

- My wife and I just got back from Khao Lak...the swell hit perfectly on Tuesday morning. If you go to Thailand, stop by the Pakarang Surf Shop (it's next to the Apsaras Hotel in Khao Lak) and see Ching and Shannon. They will hook you up.
