It's further than you think to paddle out to the right and the left requires a 20 minute hike over broken dead coral and a rock hop out to the break so wearing a pair of booties is adviseable. The beach to the south has decent waves around the rivermouth.
Needs a clean groundswell to work properly. Can lay dormant for months at a time.
Great wave when it's on, only really works in the shoulder season though (April/May and Oct/Nov)and with favourable winds.

help - I wanted to go to balie where there was good sure but my family can't afford it, so we are probably going to thailand, I really want to surf can somebody suggest the best spots for an experienced surfer. i was hoping there might be at least some good reef breaks?

A total wast of time!!! - This spot should be taken off the map! This is by far the worst place I have surfed in my entire life! Long drive to get there, nothing about, no shops, no food, nothing , long paddle, small mushy weak waves, rocky bottom. absolute SLOP! Any beach break in Phuket is way better.

Grab a taxi to corner - My favourite wave in Khao Lak-Taxi's/a long,fun right surfed only at high tide.Similar to Three's on Waikiki.Surfed Taxi's with Matt and also alone.
Second favourite wave is Corner.A long,fun left similar to Butterbox in Sydney.Maximum crowd-5...Surfed low to mid tide.
Thanks for everything Matt and Anny and I will see you next year....
