Beginner surfer seeks Asian destinations - end Jan to Feb

« on: December 28 2009 18:12:00 »

Hey surfers

I'm taking a month's sabbatical to try out surfing for the very first time. Currently based in Shanghai, the end destination is Jakarta over Chinese New Year (from 13th Feb) with the possibility of popping over to Bali either before or after.

In between, it'd be great if you could provide suggestions on where I can start surfing. I personally am thinking anywhere between Shanghai and Jakarta so that kinda leaves me with the usual suspects - Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia.... but where, though? If you think those aren't great options, do let me know anyway.

This is my maiden voyage as a lone traveler so any advice welcome! Really looking forward to getting out of the concrete jungle :)

Thanks so much!
