My surf coaching has taken me to many different places around Australia and the World. I have been lucky enough to meet some great people along the journey and surfed some amazing waves. I haven't been every where yet but I am working on it. I will try to share some of my experiences on this blog.

Thailand - International SurfingAssociation Level one coaching and Level one Judging course:
Level one ISA coaches from Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore
In Julysurfers from Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore gathered in Phuket for an ISAeducation program. Apart from the two courses I worked with the young Thaigrommets on some training drills and staged a mock three nation team event. Allthe surfers in this region are super keen and were excellent students. Bigthanks to Thai legend Krab Joob and my friend Krab Laurie for theirorganisational skills. Phuket does have some waves through July August, only small wind swell beach break type stuff. You certainly wouldn't put this place on your surf destination map but if you have a couple of young grommets and a partner who enjoys good food and the famous Thai Massage you might enjoy a holiday here.Kata beach has the most waves and the is a cool surf school at Patong beach run by my friend Decha.
