Thailand, Burma and Malaysia, whilst not internationally famous like their southern cousins do get waves, albeit smaller and weaker than can be found relatively close-by. Thailand and Malaysia's best waves arrive in the monsoon season between April and September and Thailand in particular has a thriving surfing community with more than 60 well known breaks . Burma's surfing potential is still something of a mystery due to the oppressive regime. Only a few spots have been surfed but the feedback has been positive as it receives the edge of swells travelling across the Indian Ocean. Sea temperatures remain steady at around 28Â°C or 82Â°F.
Schools with qualified surf instructors offering lessons and courses with equipment hire to individuals or groups, whether you are a total beginner, an intermediate surfer or an experienced surfer looking to improve your ability.
