Phuket surf Feb to May - I'm going to Phuket for a few months between Feb & May, anyone any idea what its like and where's best at this time? I'm still a novice so not looking for tubes just yet!!

Wind Sucks - I was Karon in July for 3 days. The first two days the off shore winds made the shoulder-high break sloppy and difficult to paddle out. The third day, the wind stopped and the waves were clean and the paddle was easy.

October - I surfed Karon and Kata for the whole of october last year. There was a consistant 3ft swell. Apart from a couple of locals i surfed alone. There were daily rain storms that lasted an hour or so but nothing too heavy. Will be heading there again this year.
