Phuket’s Premier Surf School

Although many people don’t recognise Phuket, and Thailand in general, as a surf destination,  you will be pleasantly surprised at what you can find. There are two seasons in Phuket, the high season (when the local Phuket surfers go into hibernation and/or mild depression) and then there is when you CAN surf in Phuket, surf season which runs from late April to early November, more or less.

Phuket offers both beach & reef breaks, which on their day can compete with some of the better known surf destinations of the world minus the crowds!  Shhh, this is our ‘lil secret…

There are waves for every kind of surfer in Phuket and is one of the best, safest and easiest places to learn to surf in the world. With warm waters, beautiful beaches and the friendliest local English speaking instructors, you will be up standing with a smile in no time.

Skyla’s has been actively involved in the local Thai surf community for the last 10 years & can provide an extensive knowledge of local breaks, surf conditions, competitions & surf safari’s.

Phuket’s an ideal location to have a family surf holiday with Skylas’ Surf School offering private & group lessons as well as board rentals, surf camps and holiday surf packages.

Can I Surf in Phuket all year?

Please note Surf Lessons are from May – October (Phuket’s monsoon season)

Sometimes on the rare occasion you can also surf from November – January but it’s not consistent and dependent on ground swell.

``Friendly instructor and nice spot``

Had a surf lesson long time ago and I have always wanted to do it again. In Phuket there are many surf schools and surf spots however this place is on high recommendation! My instructor is local and friendly, started out as 1 hour lesson but the waves at Bangtao beach is so good for beginner like me, I ended up spent 3 hours in the water! In addition to professional lesson and good location, a beach club is right next door. You can easily find lunch and drinks after surfing session and come back for more 🙂 Rainny P
