surfing vietnam - Shame I missed your post about going to Hoi An in Feb. I went to Ham Tien and Mui Ne and had a few bodywaves before going back to OZ. I come to VN regularly for work, and next trip will check Ap Thien Ai northish from Mui Ne. Will report. Slim
- Heading to Hoi An next week if anyone wants to go surfing. Any swell on the way?
Novices Only - A few facts.
The wave in Apocalypse Now was fictitious and shot at Baler in the Philippines.
In reality the waves at China Beach don't have much power even at the best of times. You really need at least a mini
mal to have any kind of fun there.
The real "China Beach" was set up with tents as an R&R hangout on the stretch in front of Marble Mountains during the war. A few sailors/marines had malibus with them and surfing there was slightly more fun than being shot at by VC.
That says it all.

china beach - I surfed there in Feb of '08.
Got surf from overhead to knee high, 4 days in a row. With a little luck, can be fun.
Rented a board from a german living there named gunnar. Bring some surf magazines, wax, leashes, ding repair, trunks. Nothing is available locally and the locals will be stoked.
Apocalypse shot in the Phils.. - Correction here. Apocalypse now was shot in the Philippines.
Most definitely - Just got back from My Khe and China Beach had some really long great waves about 4-5 foot for sure and clean. Banks everywhere and no one out. You can find boards if you try. Hoa's Place has a couple of heavy old things that do the job for about 10 bucks a day. Enjoy.
Either does baler - I,ve been to baler and that place sucked. Charlies point wasa rivermouth break with a rock/sand bottom -must have been good back in the 70s when they shot the film. sucked big time when i was there and you had to walk about an hour up the beach to get there.
Season from sept-april - Season starts now in Vietnam.
Thom's surfboardrental hires boards with leashes which are not broken. ( 0914- 30 10 72 )
Between My Khe ( north ) and marble mountains yuo'll always find a good bank. It is all uncrowded.
