Bang Tao in Phuket is a fairly exposed beach break that has quite reliable surf. May-Oct (Dry Season) is the optimum time of year for waves. Works best in offshore winds from the west southwest with some shelter here from south winds. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the west. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights. Good surf at all stages of the tide. The location means that it never gets crowded. Take care of the strong rips here.
