Surf an Artificial Wave in Kata Beach
Surf House Phuket is an artificial wave sport in Kata Beach, the perfect way to learn the basics of surfing, wakeboarding or even kiteboarding without all the usual effort and often pain associated with extreme sports. Here anyone can give it a try in just a couple of minutes and depending on your experience and natural balance, you will be surprised how fast you can stand on these small flow boards.
Surf House Phuket consists of two parallel high-pressure water streams flowing up an inclined slope at very high-speed, enough to create enough lift for a person. The water is barely ten centimetres deep, and the bottom is soft and rubbery, making your tumbling impressive, but painless. With such a consistent water flow speed, the learning process is simple.
You can start from the top, use a bodyboard and try to stand on it, or start on a small flow board from the bottom up and hold the rope a trainer holds you with. Watching adults and kids playing is fun and very motivating, and everyone succeeds after a few painless falls. The trainers are very good with newbies, and the young ones seem to love this sport, making it one of the best kids activities in Phuket.
Surf House Phuket is also a place for food and parties with a DJ and excellent ambience music matching pretty well the young atmosphere of such active sport. Special events are held frequently until late. Surf House Phuket also features a surf shop with flow boards, bodyboards and plenty of surf apparel. Note that there is another Surf House in Patong Beach.
