Description of Vung Tau , Vietnam

Back Beach at Vung Tau is an unknown spot on the southeast coast of Vietnam. Although fickle, the surf here can get quite good during the summer monsoon from july through november, especially when typhoons batter the central coast and send lovely swells down south. Back Beach is a 3km stretch of sand with numerous unnamed, and unsurfed breaks running its length. When the wind is out of the north west and the swell from the south the breaks can get as big as 6ft and sometimes overhead, but don't expect that often. Usually you'll see three to four footers and the occasional barrel, but typically the waves are fairly soft and the rides not overly long (the longest I've seen was maybe 75m). Basically, Vung Tau can be a nice suprise for someone traveling and not expecting surf. It can give you a good time, but won't knock your socks off everyday. If you're in Vietnam, give it a shot, but I don't recommend planning a surf trip around it.
