Surf House Flow Rider in Kata Beach

Learn to Surf in Phuket

Surf House Phuket is every surfer’s dream: a place where you can ride the waves every day no matter what the weather conditions. With an adjacent bar and restaurant, Surf House Phuket is a world to itself and as a result it is tremendously popular.

Located by the Kata/Karon administrative offices at Kata Beach, Surf House is centered on a high-pressure wave-generating machine that throws a four-inch-deep sheet of water up a sloping ‘pool’. Beginner surfers hold onto a guiding safety rope held by a staff member and, if they happen to fall or slip, instead of falling downwards the strong water flow ensures they fall upwards!

Surf House Phuket's Flow Rider

An inflated divider dissects the ‘pool’ and this is easily removed so that more experienced surfer dudes can perform their tricks with freer space. This really is for all ages from children to adults. It is said that the inventor of this concept still regularly surfs on it at the tender age of 90!

The bottom and sides of the pool are lined with padded vinyl to soften any falls and it’s virtually impossible to surf over the top of the containing walls, although when we visited a hearty round of applause rang out at a spectacular, roly-poly blowout, the surfer eventually taking a cheeky bow.

Surf House is a vibrant place to be. Apart from the pool area there’s a trendy and busy café/restaurant to the side with cool sounds, bamboo trimmings, buffed concrete floors, heavy wooden furniture and wall-mounted mini surfboards as a decorative theme. This is where surfers and instructors gather and items on the menu include pomelo seafood salad, ‘surf’s up’ salad and other chill-out snack items. A larger rooftop restaurant with sunset views and vistas out over the beach is planned.

Prices are not bargain-basement cheap but an hour on the surf machine is certainly not as expensive as renting a jet-ski and it’s a whole lot more environmentally friendly. You will need to pay a one-time 200 baht registration fee, after which you can pay by the hour (800 baht) or buy three hours at a time (2,000 baht). If you’re looking for a California-style challenging aqua-adventure in the company of a young international crowd, then Surf House Phuket is just the place to hang ten. If Kata Beach seems a little too far away for you, there is a second Surf House in Patong Beach.
