Surf in Vietnam - October/November 2009« on: June 14 2009 03:06:00 »
I am planning a 3 weeks-trip in VN in october november ; I would like to get down along the cost and travelling by night with bus.
I would like to know if anyone is planning to go as well, and know about good spot for beginners overthere to share some waves and some beers. I also wanted to know if bus transport is safe during the night as I am 26 years old girl and I am travelling alone...
Many thanks in advance for your feedbacks!!

Good luck with your trip. I havent been there yet, but a friend and i are going to go there next july for surf and travel. Have a look online at Tracks and other surf mags, they may be able to help you out.Take a travel buddy with you. That way you will always have someone looking out for you.

Hey there, i'm currently in Saigon and planning to go north in the next day or two - any updates on surfable beaches at the moment? Thinking Mui Ne or Nha Trang but not sure what the situation is!
Updates would be much appreciated :)

Im headed to Danang today for surfing over 3 days, friday, sat sun and possibly monday. Forecast says big waves, not sure if the wind is ideal but early morning back home has little wind so im hoping its the same here. Im probably be going to rent a board from Tams Pub or maybe that Gunner guy if i can get on to him early enough. Ill be surfing all day for the next three days, so if ya wanna ride together chop us an email at
or you can try my mobile 0423 019 232 im not sure if it always works, sometimes i have to put a +61423 019 232. Might see ya out there anyway.

The place for waves in Vietnam is between Quy Nhon and Tuy Hoa, you will find point breaks and some good beach breaks. Best time is from Nov to early Feb. It can be a hit and miss but when there is some swell it is well worth the effort. I have been working as a tour leader taking bike tours up and down the cost for the past ten years and I have seen some epic days!
