So, Will I Actually Find Waves on a Surf Trip to Thailand?

First of all, Thailand is not considered a world class surf destination.  It may sit at the top of bucket lists for world travelers, but it’s not exactly Nicaragua, where offshore winds blow almost year round.

But if you’re adventurous with an undying wanderlust, willing to explore the best of Thailand’s beautiful culture when prices for hotels, tours, and everything else are heavily discounted, then your chances of scoring some surf in Thailand are much greater.

Ultimately, since Phuket lacks that world class surf designation and doesn’t offer consistent or reliable surf, the answer to the question, “Am I guaranteed waves? ” is no, it’s far from a guarantee.

Unless you’re living in Bangkok or other nearby areas and are hooked on surfing, I wouldn’t recommend packing your favorite stick and jumping on the next plane to Phuket the moment you see three stars on the surf forecast.

Lists of the “best surf destinations in the world” include many other countries before Thailand is even a consideration.

Phuket’s surf season (May to November-ish) also happens to be during our low “green season” when there’s more rain (but not as much as you may think) compared to our high, dry, more expensive, tourist season (late November-April).

So, if you’re a serious surfer looking for clean, consistent waves, then consider traveling elsewhere for surf.

It can get pretty messy and challenging from the typical onshore winds but a clearing up period following a storm can offer some fun, clean surf under sunny skies for days.
