Patong Beach

The longtime Patong locals of Andaman Sea Surf School make learning how to surf as simple and fun as can be!  All you need to bring (besides yourself!) are your boardies/bikinis and sunscreen, lots of it!  The ‘boys in yellow’ are certified professionals trained by the International Surfing Association (ISA), which is recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) as the World Governing Authority for Surfing, StandUp Paddle (SUP) Surfing and Racing, and all other wave riding activities.  These guys are sure to get you up and riding!

Surf school owner and head instructor, Decha (Day), is a former surf competitor and champion who has years of experience and has won several contests competing in the Asian Surfing Championships, throughout Southeast Asia.  Day and his team of surf coaches (who are also certified lifeguards) will surely make it fun and safe for you to learn the essential fundamentals.  Ocean safety and surf etiquette are a major part of all lessons.  No matter what kind of experience or background you may have, these guys will have you covered!

If you’re an adventure seeker, their surf hotel and school will organize a surf safari around different regions of Phuket or up north along the west coast of mainland Thailand (pending weather conditions).  It’s a great way for you and your friends to explore the well known (or unknown) surf spots with established locals who are knowledgable of Thailand’s best surf spots and conditions.

Private and group lessons are available throughout the months of May through November.  Lessons are also possible during other parts of the year if there is sufficient swell for surfing.  Try Stand Up paddle (SUP) boarding when the ocean turns flat. It’s a great way to burn off all the calories from the delicious Thai food and drinks you’ll be having!

You may want to choose from their surf and Stand Up paddle package deals, which includes multiple nights stay at their beautiful boutique Baan Andaman Sea Surf resort. You’ll have everything you need including your board, leash, rashie, wax, and water. A guided surf tour and a motorbike with surf rack will also help to get you going in becoming a surfer for life!

Their surf school and board rentals are set up right on the white sands of Patong beach across from the Charm Resort Phuket (just north of the Phuket Graceland Resort and Spa).  Look for the tan, friendly guys with big smiles wearing bright yellow rashies!  See map here.

Consider staying at their Baan Andaman Sea Surf Resort in the hills of Patong City.  It’s truly a peaceful getaway yet it’s close enough to all the action when you’re ready to explore Phuket’s hottest nightlife scene and party the night away.  You’ll certainly feel at home staying at this very welcoming, family-owned and run boutique hotel.

Added perks of staying at this relaxing retreat include free high speed internet, an oasis-like swimming pool and pool side lounge, fitness club, shuttle bus service, laundry service, and more!
