Hi all, I've got a work trip in china (near Shanghai) which ends in late July. I've got 3 days off then another work thing in Thailand - near Bangkok.

I'd like to go somewhere and surf on those 3 days off. Where do you suggest? My first thought is back to Indo but it appears that the flights don't link up well and are quite expensive for what would end up being 3-4 surf sessions max. That got me thinking that there has to be other options out there.

Is there any likelihood of waves elsewhere, say between Shanghai and Bangkok? I understand this is not the time of year for good surf...

Over to the erBB brains trust!

When i got a chance to travel Asia. I went to Phil and found how lovely the island of Siargao that is shaped like a teardrop. The locals are nice and the waves are wild. I had a great time and enjoyed the beauty of nature high. Good thing i started using vape pen. I need not worry about getting my papers wet.

Phuket might be the call. But don't expect Indo type waves. If not, maybe Hainan island.I live in Singapore. So always scrounging around but also almost always end up in Indo.

It is definitely the season. In fact, the typhoon that's hitting Taiwan right now is the biggest we've seen all year. Swell up to 7 meters (23') in some spots.
