Might be coming to Vietnam in jan/feb 2008. What is the surf like at that time of year and where are the best surfspots? I'm a beginner. Also, will I need a wetsuit at that time of year?

My son surfed most every day in Jan/Feb of this year at the beach in Da Nang near the Furama Resort. That's the rainy season, so skies are often overcast and it's the coolest time of year. A spring suit would keep you very comfortable. The advantage is that you don't have to worry about getting cooked by the tropical sun at that time of year.

Please People....In Vietnam, the prevailing wind is from the land onto the sea and there are no significant waves for surfing. Sometimes there are storms off the coast and the waves are large but unsuited for surfing.
The swiming is great and the lobsters are gigantic but if you surf there, you haven't sean real waves and the expenses are high at the resorts.
There are plenty of reasons to visit Vietnam but it is not worth the trip if you just want to surf.

You're right, there are plenty of other reasons to travel to Vietnam. I found enough reasons to move here from America with my family. (see why here: www.steadyfootsteps.org) It's true, this is not the North Shore of Hawaii, but it still can be a lot of fun surfing and kicking back on a gorgeous, uncrowded beach. Yes, there are resorts here that are pricey--by my standards, at least. But two blocks back from the 5 Star Furama Resort, you can stay at the air-conditioned Sun Hotel for $12-15 USD/night, then have bacon and eggs and a big cup of coffee at Tam's Pub (www.tamspub.com) for $1.50 and rent either a board or a motorbike from her for $5 USD. How does that compare to Hawaiian prices?

Hey Gunnar, I'm in Hue at the moment and I will be heading to Da Nang tomorrow morning. Would love to get a wave in, this chat has been handy and I have taken down some info re board rental. If anyone want to give me a bell and go for a surf my mobile is +61407587039 its an Aussie mobile so it might be a bit exspensive.
