ko samet - visited 2007 octobre, after sttorm: small mushy wave.
No real surf and no surfboards for hire. people should come here to relax not surf

JOKING ARENT YOU - The guys in teh wetsuits are a dead give away, do you knwo anybody that would wear a wetsuit in luke warm water??? The wave is a give away too, not Thailand for sure, look at the water color. I have lived here 8 years and surf all the time, if you want waves come to Phuket between July and October otherwise forget it.
