Kata Beach in Phuket is an exposed beach break that does not work very often. May-Oct (Dry Season) is the optimum time of year for waves. Works best in offshore winds from the northeast with some shelter here from north winds. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell angle is from the southwest. The beach break provides left and right handers. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. Likely to be crowded if working. Watch out for rocks, rips, pollution after rain.
