ABOUT THE SURF CAMP


LOCATION AND SURF CONDITIONS

Da Nang is the epicenter of surfing in Vietnam, thanks to its warm climate and long stretches of beach with great waves that break all year round. Surf season in Da Nang is around October to March, where average water temperatures are 80°F (27 °C).  The beach is the most popular area for surfing among expats and is growing in popularity among the locals.

My Khe Beach, also known as China Beach, has a long sandy coast that stretches 18 miles (30 kilometers) southward from Da Nang center.  Surfing in Da Nang is popular on My Khe, My An, and Non Nuoc beaches as they offer somewhat reliable surf on beautiful white sand beaches. The two to four foot breaks and sand bottom make for good conditions for beginners and experts alike. All surfers should be aware that My Khe breaks far from the shore and has a strong riptide. Surfers should only paddle out here if they’re confident they can make it back in negotiating riptides.

The conditions are perfect for beginners to learn the sport, but there are occasional dangerous rips for thrill-seekers. Nam O Point and Lang Co Beach are two other popular spots in Da Nang with high-quality waves to get your surf on. 


CAMP CHARACTER

All of our courses and classes are open to everyone from 5 to 85 years old.  Some swimming ability is needed for all the water sports activities. 



CAMP OPERATOR

Da Nang Outdoor Adventures was founded by Eoin Kinsella, an Outdoor Adventure Sports Instructor from Ireland with over 18 years’ experience in the industry.  Eoin graduated from the Outdoor Adventure Management Course (known as the Shackleton Course) in Colaiste Dhulaigh in Dublin in the 2002 and he has been surfing and kayaking around Vietnam since 2011.   After surfing in Da Nang and discovering some beautiful empty peaks down the coast he decided that he wanted to share his memorable experience with other travelers. He decided that one of the core mission of Da Nang Outdoor Adventures would be to provide activities for people of all ages and backgrounds in Da Nang.

MORE INFO, HOW TO GET THERE & FAQ


 SURF CONDITIONS

Breaks directly at the main spot and at nearby spots

My Khe in Da Nang is an exposed beach break that has reasonably consistent surf. Winter is the optimum time of year for surfing here. Offshore winds blow from the west with some shelter here from northeast winds. Usually gets local wind swells, but groundswells do happen and the optimum wave angle is from the northeast. Waves at the beach break both left and right. It's sometimes crowded here.

Cue Dai is a steep beach break which, when it works, builds a swell big enough to create some nice waves if the conditions are right. It’s about a 25-minute drive down to Cua Dai from Da Nang.  The spot works best from May-October when the southwest wind funnels swell into the coastline.

Nam O Point in Da Nang is an exposed left point break that has great surf and is about 20-minute drive from My Khe Beach. Winter is the best time of year for surfing here. Ideal winds are from the west southwest with some shelter here from northeast winds. Waves more likely to break on big groundswell from typhoons rather than from local wind swells and the ideal wave angle is from the northeast.

Seasonal conditions

Vietnam has waves for many months of the year but the best time is between October to March when we get fairly consistent winter swells coming in and there is always something to surf. This is primarily from the NE Monsoon which provides lots of wind swell from the ENE to NE.  Good for all types of boards, although it can be tough for learning, since the sea can be a bit rough. If the waves are too big for surf lessons, we will move up the beach towards Son Tra to find smaller waves.  From December to February a spring suit keeps you warm enough on cloudy days.

April to September: The temperatures go up and the size of the waves goes down. This is a very good time for beginner or improver who surf a fun/longboard. No wetsuit needed – just a lot of sun cream!

Typhoon season June to October: Although there is some shadowing of the pacific swell by the Philippines we do get some Typhoons that come into the South China Sea and make landfall in Southern China or even hit Vietnam. These typhoons bring nice long period ground swells to the coast of Vietnam which lights up all the spots along the beach and beyond. Most typhoons active are between July and September – don’t miss this unique chance of surfing great waves. This is the best time to chase the long period typhoon swells and score some unbelievable waves.

Crowd factor and local people

It can be busy during the summer and autumn months but it’s a long 30km of beach so there’s no shortage of sandbars and plenty of room for everyone.


 SURROUNDINGS / REGION

Characterization of surroundings/region

Da Nang city is the third largest city in Vietnam, Da Nang is in close proximity to Hue – 2 hours from the North and Hoi An – 30 minutes South, which makes it a perfect stop point for those who need a break from tourist areas. Da Nang is growing into one of the most organized urban areas with attractive beaches front villas on the one side and Han river flowing on the other.

TOP THINGS TO DO IN DA NANG:

Explore Son Tra Peninsula

Son Tra Peninsula looms to the North of My Khe Beach with its densely forested hillsides which are home an abundance of wildlife and is a World Heritage Site. Why not explore the headland and try to spot some of the many striking primates such as rhesus macaques, long-tailed macaques, pygmy lorises, and the endangered red shanked douc langur -- one of the world’s most striking primates. Grab some binoculars, hire a motorbike, and head out for a day of wildlife spotting.

Learn about Cham culture

A couple of hours outside of Da Nang lies My Son Sanctuary, a UNESCO-listed complex of abandoned temples dating from the 4th to the 14th century. Hidden among the jungle, some towers are overgrown and many are in ruin, but enough remains to whisk you back in time. To learn more about Cham culture, visit the superb Cham Museum of Sculpture in Da Nang, home to the largest collection of Cham sculpture in the world. 

Dine on street food

Da Nang is a dream destination for foodies, with scores of seafront eateries serving every night of the week. Banh mi—the Vietnamese baguette—is taken to a new level here. Mi quang is another delight and every Da Nang local will offer an opinion on where to find the best.
