To Gunnar Moeller - hi,

I was checking the net to see about the stormrider 2 and my friend from called me to say they had a report about VN.

Could it be possible that we can find waves here? it seems to!!! So i found your contact and i would need some infos.

I am living in Saigon since about 16 months and i checked the beach in the south without good results (some small waves in Vung Tau ... fun to do some short rides and tricks but not real surfing). I surfed 2 times in Hoi An with a longboard rented at "Safari Bar" and I think that now i really have to check Danang.

So, i would need some more info. Is this season good now (june - jully)? Do you have some small longboards (8.2 - 8.5) or some retro boards (small but large ones, eggs)? I use to ride a special 8.3 and small eggs in France but no real surf since i am in VN so i want to have so fun and be able to move my ass easily.
Moreover do you know some good places to stay? I mean good atmosphere, close from the spot and ok to stay for foreigner guy + VN gfr?

My contact: Sylvain HA - smit_vnt@hotmail.com

Thanks for your help and maybe see you soon.

PS: it could be good to have your email!

Surfing Hoi An - Was in Hoi An recently. The waves there are glassy and from 3 to 5ft. Consistant from Late Sept to Feb. However the area is flat during the summer months. Both at China beach and Hoi an beach. With the exception of a passing storm. Was riding some great waves 8 days ago. Equipment 9.2 long board. I found a great place to rent boards. Just near the beach is a place called Safari Bar and Grill.. They rent boards and serve great food and the coldest beer in town. The place is owned by a California guy who surfs. Check this place out!!!

Vietnam Surf in October - I toured Vietnam the last week of September and the first week of October 2004. Although this was not a surfing trip, I, as a surfer, took keen interest in the ocean when ever it was near. I checked before departure to see if there was board hire at any of the locations that I visited but found surfing to be pretty much unheard of. I therefore purchased an inflateable surfmat that would fit into my pack so that I would at least have something to ride if there were waves. I first saw the coast at Hoi An. The weather was monsoonal with very large thunderstorms and torrential rain day and night. In between the storms was very hot with a very strong onshore NE wind from about 10am onwards. However, between sunrise and 10am, there were OK glassy beach breaks around 2 to 3 feet and occasionally bigger. The water temp seemed to be around 30 deg C. It would have been great on a mal but a bit of a struggle on a short board. The next place was Nha Trang. The wind situation was the same as Hoi An, still mornings and 30 knot NE winds in the PM. Nha Trang had a couple of reef/point breaks with nice peeling waves that again appeared to be 2 to 3 feet. There was a large island about 10km off the coast that would probably have had better waves. Also, between Nha Trang and the airport,located south of the city, was a large headland that was giving protection from the NE onshore. I wouldn't head to Vietnam if you were only interested in surfing but if you are there for a holiday anyway, its definately worth a go. The next time I head there, I will be taking a board.
