This post may have a few mentions of the actual Danang Surf Club, but it will not be devoted exclusively to it — I found far too little information on it. One source says that 10 expatriates formed the club, but I found no mention of exactly when. Another source suggests that there was a Danag Surf Club in existence when the American military hung out at China Beach during the Vietnam War; and that the current Danang Surf Club is run by someone named ‘Tam,’ and its location is within “a couple hundred yards” of where the U.S. forces had their club (see this forum post here).
So although you may find the odd Danang Surf Club reference in the collection of material that follows, it is Danang itself that is going to be the general focus.
