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.
