    PHUKET, THAILAND, August 20, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Quiksilver Thailand Surf Competition 2011 will be returning to Phuket in September and will be hosted at a new venue.

Traditionally held at Kata Beach, the competition is relocating to Patong and Kalim Beaches between September 21st and 24th due to the growing scale of the event.

Sporting goods manufacturer Quiksilver Thailand is the key sponsor of the event, which is organised in conjunction with Surfing Thailand, the local governing body for surfing in the area.
