General surf information
Krui left is a quality left hand reef break with a perfect barrel. Most days it is 1.2 to 1.5 mtrs and suitable for intermediate surfers. It is hidden away behind a headland and needs a very large S to SW swell to get over 1.8 mtrs and be excellent.
Vibe in the water
When the swell gets big at other breaks most beginner to intermediate level surfers and bodyboarders head to Krui, this becomes a real problem as Krui Left has a very small takeoff zone and can not handle a crowd.
There are no rules at Krui Left so you need a lot of patience, tolerance and a cool head to surf Krui Left, if that does not sound like you then it's probably best to avoid this surf break.
Recent years has seen an explosion in local surfers that rip, it's easy to predict that in a few years getting a wave at this break will be a challange for any visiting surfer.
As krui town grows so does it's impact on the cleanliness of the ocean. It is now becoming common to see garbage and dirty baby diapers floating in the line-up. After a heavy rain it is probably best to avoid surfing here as a small stream that runs through Krui empties all sorts of nasties into the ocean.
