Wind Surfing in Phuket

Windsurfing equipment can be rented either from resorts or from local shops. The rental rate for a surfboard complete with sails is about 200 baht per hour. Windsurfing boards may be rented by the hour, half-day, full day or longer. Lessons for beginners are available. The quality of equipment is sometimes better at the big hotels, although some of the independent operators offer fine service as well.

The best time for windsurfing in Phuket is during the dry season, from November to May, when the wind is steady and the sea is calm. People are advised to refrain from Wind Surfing in Phuket during mid-May to end of October when the southwestern monsoon blows from India across the Andaman Sea, creating heavy seas.
