There are about 4 breaks on Kamala beach, all good fun and all safe. Local are great, they give you waves and cheer you on, the way it should be. They taught me to surf and are prepared to teach anybody, superfriendly and super fun.
This a great spot to surf, the locals are very friendly and can suirf well. Whichever way the swells are coming in Kamala will offer a good break etiher side of the bay. When coming on from the south west it is a long left break at teh south of the bay starting over a reef and then goning over the sand for a good 150 m. Mosty the break is at the north of the bay and a beach break, long rides startign about 50m offshore. Great fun place with a great vibes and great waves for fun surfers. Egos stay at home.
Amazing Thailand, peaceful, friendly, great soft fun waves, beautiful untouched beach, perfect really. No aggro from the surfers unless they are foreigners, food is great and Kamala valley is very spiritual, check it out!
The locals love to have surfers come in from other places and even offer you the best waves! After my experience on the North Shore of Hawaii this place is heaven, long, soft, fin waves with no egos at all. The waves can get big and the currents stong but the bay holds large waves well and small also so it is pretty mush the place in the island guaranteed to have a good riude no matter which direction the swell is coming.
Totally chilled like the waves and place, all good, no egos here mat so if you want to go shred go elsewhere, if you want nice chilled longboard waves and wicked good vibes come here.
I live here and it is my home break, Kata and Kalim are good breaks also but overcrowded. Kamala is still relatively secret except with local boys who suft the spot every day. In season it is pretty much always surfable as it can hold waves from any direction, Kalim has to be perfect and is a reef so more hairy but Kamala has nice long rolling breaks left and right. Try it out, it is back to what surfing should be all about. GREAT SUNSETS TOO!

Surf Late December, Early January? - Hey there. Big surfer from Southern California. Going to Phukey, Kamala the day after Christmas. Any idea if there will be waves? If so, is there anywhere to rent a board?
