|Same point last year 30 June 2013|
Last part of June passed as was in Phuket forecast, during the week end (21 and 22 June) stormy and wet, then strong wind blown clouds away on Monday and Tuesday giving a great break between Wednesday and Friday. Also waves were much lower and all sea activities started again as usual.

I believe that weather in Phuket in June 2014 has been normal, strong wind with big waves, some short but powerful rainstorm alternated to good sunny days. June is one of best time in Phuket for those like surfing, however this nice open air activity need the perfect combination between wind and tides. If like to surf in Phuket best moment is during the incoming high tide. Combined with the big swells from off shore make the condition perfect to enjoy surfing. Mots famous beaches in Phuket among surfers lovers are Kata Beach and Kalim beach.

Don't forget while surfing in Phuket that sea can be very dangerous during summer monsoon, rip currents in Phuket between end of May and begin of October make difficult to swim and every year the sea claims few life.
|Swim in the area between two red and yellow flags|
On all most important beaches there are signs displaying information about the Phuket west coats rip currents. How to deal with them and where is possible to swim. Also on all major beaches red flags are displayed.
What does mean red flag on the beach?
That it is dangerous to go in the water, even in shallow water, as the rip current is strong can knock a person down and drag the person in deep water.
However can still enjoy the beaches, just be careful and follow the signs. Best thing during summer is to book hotels with nice pool settings.
