Well, it’s now time to put that board where your mouth is as the atmosphere is building around the beaches of Phuket as the first surf competition of 2016 is happening this weekend, July 16 and 17 on Kamala Beach in front of the Sunwing Resort.

This competition will be the 12th Kamala Surf contest, and the local surfers of Kamala are super pumped about bringing together the best of Thailand’s talent to compete in the event.

The surfers have been spoilt the last few weeks with consistent clean waves which has allowed them to develop their skills and fitness.

Divisions in the competition include men & women open short and longboards, and to celebrate the the future of surfing there is also a grom division for kids.

Joe 12 Thais are not a race, but many certainly seem to think they are. I would not assign my opinion to all Asians, certainly not Koreans and Japanese who tend to be hard working and intelligent- and it shows in their cultures. 
The Thai culture- the heritage- does not reward honesty, it promotes lying, hard work is not recognized, laziness is expected, ignorance acceptable as normal, questioning is discouraged. 
Yes, deficient in morality is my opinion of Thai culture.

Ed..oh really?...not according to Kurt...he says there are more foreigners living in Phuket than Thais. Best check your stats as well, that way your comments will be more intelligible and reliable. 

Christy...  What your commitments are, is of no concern to anyone. Rearrange your life accordingly, so as you don't have to live in a morally deficient culture. 

By attributing another race as morally deficient, is certainly taking a position of high moral superiority. But then again, I am not sure whether you are using the term in a descriptive (certain codes of conduct put forward by a society or a group (such as a religion), or accepted by an individual for her own behavior) or in a normative sense (a code of conduct that, given specified conditions, would be put forward by all rational persons.) Not all moral codes that are put forward by societies or groups are moral codes in the descriptive sense, and not all codes that would be accepted by all moral agents are moral codes in the normative sense of morality.

So, if you are not a member of Thai society, or not a Thai, then accepting a certain account of the content of morality, in the descriptive sense, has no implications for how one should behave. On the other hand, if one accepts your statement of "morally deficiency", and the specifications and conditions which you and others would endorse a code of conduct as a moral code, then one accepts your normative definition of “morality.”

I would suggest that any moral deficiency is far worse than that from whence you came.

Whoa there, Joe 12. Agree with me? I never suggested anyone should "frigging go back.." just because they expressed disappointment with what is(IMO)a morally deficient culture. Many of us have responsibilities or commitments that don't allow for a move back to civilization. Tell you what though, I have started a fund to do just that, why not contribute?

Joey...farangs aren't the problem you moron, but I don't suppose you get off your fat ass and venture outside the OTEP scene enough to see for yourself.

Joe12 | 18 July 2016 - 18:47:53

Agree with Christy. If Ed doesn't like it here or the place is not to the standard from whence he came...frigging go back there. Haven't you noticed that the general policy is leaving things to take their own course, without interfering. Why on earth do you want authorities to provide everything for you. Doesn't take much to take your rubbish with you and recycle.

Kurt | 18 July 2016 - 16:59:47

Yes, khun swerv.
The beach full with spectators is a beach happening to watch the surf competition.
All spectators eat and drink, and I myself noticed there were not enough trash bins.
Obviously you missed the point of my comment.  
You simple re-comment shows that.

Kurt | 18 July 2016 - 16:38:28

Christy Sweet, yes, I agree with you.
But I like to differentiate about global mind setting.
Scandinavian countries, The Netherlands, Germany, Canada, Australia, New Zeeland, Singapore, Japan, their citizens are very much aware of environment caring.
( forgive me if I forget a country to mention, but this are the countries I have noticed/experienced it.

The throw away mentality on Phuket is very bad, specially at Phuket beaches during thai holidays. We all know that.

Recycling is not living much yet among locals.

I live in a estate, managed by thai.
Garbage collection here is a disgusting happening.
The collectors throw the contents of the garbage on the road, and than separate.
I myself bought a while ago a number of trash bins, put stickers on it ( Glass, plastic, tins only), and put it in the estate.
All estate occupants were happy with it.
What happened?  
The thai estate management removed my 'environmental trash bins'!
Justification? --> "This is not the way we do it here".

Yes, yes.  And this is not just here.
Sort of happenings also happened in other Phuket estates.

Phuket needs environment education in secondary schools.

Ed, I understand you are referring to a small gathering where officials completely ignored the need to look out for the environment, but I am looking at a bigger picture. We are all the change. Until you and I and Kurt and every other reader begin to change our habits, to not expect our "garbage" to magically evaporate from our custody, then nothing can change, ever. The planet cannot sustain our current lifestyles. Imagine in 50 years what it will be like if we do put a stop to it now.

Christy Sweet | 18 July 2016 - 10:07:00

Kurt, It's not so much about local authorities not dealing with garbage, but  about changing a  global mindset that 7 billion people can just expect to toss into a convenient container used  food containers and other unwanted items and have that as an end to their responsibility. Burned or dumped, both are detrimental to the environment, wasted resources, energy used to manufacture it, emissions, etc. etc. I recycle or compost almost all waste and it just is not that difficult to do. I am sickened when I see the neighbor filling up a 50 gallon can each and every day with what could be recycled materials.
