Kata Beach is the best place for surfing in Phuket. The northern water’s waves are small and suitable for surfer beginners. The southern water’s waves are big and more suitable for middle-level surfers. When you experience surfing, you will see a lot of surfing masters from all over the world.
Before experiencing surfing in Phuket, you need to do warm-up exercises. On the beach, the coach will take you to do some simple stretching exercises. After that, the coach will take you to practice surfing action in advance on the beach, and explain the precautions for entering the water.
Rushing from deep to shallow water makes surfing easier for beginners. In the beginning, you learn how to get on board. You need to lie on the surfboard, wait for the waves, find a chance to get up, and then stand on the surfboard. Paddling looks simple, but it’s not as simple as you thought. Mastering the right paddling skill is one of the most important steps in learning to surf. How to minimize the resistance and maximize the push forward is the most difficult place to learn to paddle. Because it is difficult to take into account all the correct postures and movements, only continuous practice and correction can be used to remember the feeling of correct paddling.
