This event will promote tourism for the province during the Green Season, as well as publicise this surfing competition of Phuket throughout June-September 2019.

Mrs. Kanokkittika Kritwutikon, Director of the TAT Phuket Office, stated that in 2018, the TAT Phuket Office arranged the “Phuket Surf Series 2018+KHAOLAK, which received a lot of interest, and made surfing increasingly popular. This resulted in increased travel to Phuket province and the surrounding area by tourists to experience surfing. As such, this year, the TAT Phuket Office will organise the “Phuket Surf Fest 2019”, which will be a surf and music festival, to create fun and continue the marketing and publicising of surfing of the province to become well-known to be a popular surf destination of Thailand. This will encourage the surfers market as the lifestyle group of tourists, both Thais and foreigners, who are interested in and love surfing to come to Phuket to watch or participate in this event throughout the Green Season.
