About
Our surf lesson runs in all seasons. We run all our Surf Courses on Bai Dai Beach, located 40 minutes drive from Nha Trang city centre. Bai Dai is an excellent beach break with shallow blue waters and an isolated coastline. Waist-deep waters mean you don't need to know how to swim in order to experience surfing. Our school offers ISA-certified surf instructors (International Surfing Association) and apply innovative, effective surf teaching following ISA standards. Our Surf Courses Include: free car pick up service from your hotel to the surf spot & back, mineral water & snacks, complimentary surf photos, free safety storage of your personal belongings, shower, changing rooms & toilet facilities, free use of surf equipment & accessories (surfboards, leash, wax, rash vest & etc). The timing of the Surf Classes is generally in the early morning, usually at one of these timings: 6.30am/7am/7.30am/8am/8.30am. The specific times are decided each day by the Surf Instructors!

My boyfriend and I took the beginners course and was instructed by Phu! Phu was super friendly and patient, was there from the beginning til the end to help us catch some waves. The pick up and drop off service was convenient and I would definitely go back to surf at the Local Surf School! It was around a 20 min drive from the main city so we were in a very secluded beach area which was amazing. Super quiet, clean, perfect waves 🌊

Only the best place on earth!
I had so many great memories (and great pictures) thank to NT Local Surf School. To be honest I didn’t expect that the trip would be so great since I travelled alone and didn’t do the thorough research like where should I visit, what should I eat in Nha Trang as usual. But everything turned out so great. I had awesome surfing lessons, tried delicious food all thank to Mr Phu. He was an excellent instructor and passionate about surfing that I ended up spending a whole week there instead of 3-4 days as planned. He also showed me where local eats with reasonable price.❤

Surfing above the waves was one of the most exhilarant experiences I’ve ever had. I had wanted to learn to surf for years but growing up in a city, I had so many fear. Like should I quit a whole week for surf trip? Or like can I surf while my ability to swim is terrible. But Phu instructed me so well. A little by little, he helped me overcome my anxiety and gain my confidence by small achievements. He made me feel so good even when I couldn’t catch a wave 🙏

Beside that, Bai Dai beach is really beautiful (but I wish people will stop throwing stuffs out there) compared to central beach. Nha Trang people are super hospitable and local food are sooo delicious.

Will come back there for more surfing lessons for sure! I miss surfing and sun bathing way too much ❤️

The location of this place is so nice to enjoy the beach. Whenever you visit to Na Trang, Pls visit here. I want you to enjoy this place also and I'm sure you'll definitely love here.

Their lesson is very detailed and kind. So that I can enjoy surfing even it was first time. You can get a lesson in shop first and then go to the beach to practice. He keep give explain and feed-back about my position that need to improve. So you can easily stand-up on the surf board and feel the waves.

It was really fantastic so I visit there on tomorrow morning again even though the flight leaves at 11am. The price is also reasonable, so I recommend you to visit here if you travel to Na Trang!

정말 친절하고 자세하게 가르쳐줘서 처음인데도 바로 서핑을 즐길 수 있었습니다. 파도도 서핑 입문하기 좋게 너무 높지도 않고 적당해서 처음하시는 분들도 위험하지 않게 즐길 수 있어요! 그리고 서핑샵 위치도 트여있는 곳이라 비치체어에 앉아 경치를 즐기기에도 충분히 좋습니다. 나트랑 방문하시는 분들에게 정말정말 추천드려요!

Phu is a great instructor! It was our second surfing lesson so he focused more on improving our technique and exlpained more about the waves. By the end of the day we were able to catch the waves ourselves and gave us extra time to practice at no extra cost. I would highly recommend for absolute beginners but also for people who have tried it before and want to get better! The location is also amazing with one of the nicest and cleanest beaches in Nha Trang - we spend two days there just because it was great!

This was an incredible experience for my husband and son - Phu, our instructor, was patient, encouraging and very knowledgeable. All inclusive package of transportation, snacks, board rental, hours of coaching and instruction for about $50-$60/pp was extraordinary. Don’t quote me as price can fluctuate with currency but we loved it. Bai Dai beach is beautiful, clean, not crowded and has a surf break ideal for beginners. Highly recommend this surf school!

These guys do a really wonderful job teaching you how to surf. I went with my two daughters - and we all actually learned to surf - I still cannot believe I stood up on a board. They really took the time to teach us technique then spent hours in the water developing the skills. We had such a great time. Definitely something you should do when in Nha Trang. Felt safe and very fun.

Definitely a 5* experience of learning & fun. Phu is the best instructor you could ask for, very knowledgeable, extremely attentive & kind, and you can tell he's super passionate about surfing so you can rest assured that you'll be in good hands! It's also the best value for money, as the fee includes not only free pick up & drop off, some healthy fruit snacks, fresh coconuts, but also a personalised google drive folder with some pictures & videos of you catching the waves! Animal lovers beware: too many cute doggos & cats chilling around for you to play with. Overall this experience has completely exceeded my expectation and I hope to be back in the future!

The spot is very beautiful. We rent one board for 3h and it was 350,000vnd. Good price for what it is.
Holders of the surf rental are very friendly, we didn’t payed for a lesson but they were happy to give us advice.
I recommend !

What a great experience. Phu was our instructor and he was so professional. He organized a car to pick us up at our place in time. He taught us step by step and easy to understand. He and his team were very nice and kind. We also had fruits during break for each section. I highly recommend this tour for someone would likes to do activities on the beach.

The course was great and we would really recommend it to everyone!
We booked a 2:1 lesson for beginners just 2 days in advance. The communication was really fast and helpful. We were picked up at the hotel on time. The drive was about 25 minutes. Phu was really skilled and an experienced teacher. He knew what to tell beginners in which order. After theory we practiced with him. There it is helpful to have a group as small as possible since he gives many individual advices. Additionaly, in the beginning you can‘t surf all together at once but have to wait for the others.
We got water and some fruits in the breaks. In the end you have time to surf on your own. There are showers and a toilet. I was offered a long shirt to protect you from the sun and your elbows from the board.
We wanted to book another course but Phu was really fair telling us the waves the next days would not be good enough for surfing. In my personal opinion it‘s sustainable to support locals with your decisions.
