Kata Beach is supposedly one of the best beaches in Phuket and in Thailand for surfing. The waves were indeed bigger here than at the others beaches we saw, but the monsoon winds presented a challenge. We gave it a shot anyway, renting boards from a group of rastafarian dudes. The second picture is the entire "board shop!" It was fun to get in the water, and we both caught a few!
