The 3rd annual Quiksilver Thailand Surf Competition 2011 will be held at Patong and Kalim Beaches from September 21st to September 24th — just a few minutes from Patong Language School. Traditionally this popular event has been held at Kata Beach, but the venue has been changed for 2011 because of its growing popularity.
The three day surfing festival is expected to attract hundreds of surfers from around the world. Other attractions will include a fashion show, live music and surfing lessons.
The crystal clear water of the Andaman Sea averages 28°C (or 82°F) and is a perfect place to learn how to surf. Or, you can just lie on one of the many white sandy beaches on this beautiful tropical island.
With this year’s Quicksilver surf competition being held so close to our school, undoubtedly many language students and TEFL trainees will be attending. Students enrolled in on of our Thai classes will be able to practice what they’ve learned and get to see some of the best surfers in the world.
