|Find the best surf spots||
The surf seems inconsistent to me, but with a bit of luck you will find something--and the water's warm. probably sept. to april is best. boards to rent, mostly longboards, at Hoas place on the beach right in front of marble mountains. great character and has rooms to rent, laid back kind of place. da nang, also has surf and is busier. beach break all the way from da nang to hoi an. also surf in vang tau and kite surfing at mni ne. if you are very lucky at mui ne there is a great tuby wave.

Tell it Like it Is - To "Best surf in Vietnam is in Nha Trang" Let me guess. You've been to Danang, Hoi An, Nha Trang & Mui Ne. Maybe even a few other places on the open tour bus route. Well done.
To Surfpoint Vietnam: If you are going to use a photo of foreign surf break on your website, clearly say so.
I'm not coming to either of your places. You see, I no longer consider you trustworthy (it's your own fault).
Does anyone remember surfing just for the sake of surfing?

Best surf in Vietnam is in Nha Trang - I am originally from Hawaii, USA and have been living in Nha Trang for 6 months. There is great surf here in Nha Trang with a great beginner beach called Bai Dai which is 25 kilometers South of Nha Trang, or for more advanced surfers you can surf Hon Chong 7 kilometers north. Season here is generally between October through early April and swells range from 1 to 5 meters. There is a place called the Shack in Bai Dai which has over 28 boards for rent and a very knowledgeable English speaking staff.
