SURFING IN SOUTHEAST ASIA

Southeast Asia has a total coastline of more than 106,000 km. We are continually battered by beautiful waves from the Andaman and the Indian Ocean in the West, the mighty Pacific Ocean in the East and the unforgiving Arctic Ocean in the South – all beautiful gifts for surfers! *Sweet!*

The world has already recognized Indonesia as a surfing mecca with more than 150 known surf sites. Thailand and Malaysia has their share of attractions. Vietnam and Timor Leste are being noticed lately and the Philippines has the potential to be the next surfing mecca.

Padang Padang, Uluwatu, Koh Kradan, Mentawai or Pururan may not mean anything to those who are not familiar. But these surf sites are “sacred” in the surfing world.

With the help of some of BISEAN’s friends in the circuit, we will feature the greatest surfing sites of Southeast Asia in our coming blog posts. This means mobilizing more than 20 seasoned surfers to visit, rate and of course, ENJOY these gifts from the gods of the ocean.
