If you ever wanted to learn surfing, it’s high time you do it when you come to Phuket! Catch waves at any time and in any weather.
Surf House is a perfect place for those who want to learn surfing. With its smooth slide of water dropping down under a high pressure, the place is open to public from 10:00 am to 11:59 pm.
Here, everyone conquers waves in the order of first come first served, then they surf till they fall, then wait in the line again. During the day there can be up to 20 people (usually around 10-15) in the line, while in the evening the place is usually almost empty and you can surf to your heart’s content.
Instructors will help newcomers to overcome the fear of the first wave as well as share valuable tips with advanced surfers. The instructor can support you with a special rope – with this kind of support it is easier to hold out on the board while you’re still learning. You can celebrate your surf victories here in the outdoor bar or indoor restaurant, a place where local DJs often come to play.
