Journalist Lai Van Sam ‘gulps sea water’ during balancing challenge at TUI BLUE Nam Hoi An

TMG – Four invited guests from “A date with youth” took on a surfboard balancing challenge at TUI BLUE Nam Hoi An, resulting in peals of delighted laughter.

On beautiful Tam Tien Beach at the 5-star TUI BLUE Nam Hoi An resort, celebrity guests from the program “A date with youth” including journalist Lai Van Sam, diplomat Lai Ngoc Doan and artists Hong Van, Hong Dao and Thanh Thuy undertook the challenge of posing on surfboards in Episode 1 of the show, broadcast on VTV3 on the evening of October 22.

The first team consisted of journalist Lai Van Sam and diplomat Lai Ngoc Doan. The second team was artists Hong Dao and Thanh Thuy. Mr. Tran Thanh Han, Water Sports Supervisor at TUI BLUE Nam Hoi An along with two colleagues were the instructors and ensured the safety of the guests in the surfboard balancing photo challenge.

“This is too easy! Doan and I will win for sure,” crowded journalist Lai Van Sam confidently. However, right after standing up on the surfboard in the sea, journalist Lai Van Sam repeatedly fell to the cheers of artists Hong Van, Hong Dao and Thanh Thuy.

“It was really difficult the first time,” journalist Lai Van Sam shared after the ordeal.

Faring better than his teammate, diplomat Lai Ngoc Doan seized his moment and posed for photos along Tam Tien Beach before losing his balance and falling into the sea. “Happy” was how he felt after the challenge.

The next part of the challenge featured the team of artists Thanh Thuy and Hong Dao. “The two ladies probably won’t even be able to stand up, let alone balance,” predicted journalist Lai Van Sam after his “bruising” experience.

However, contrary to his prediction, artist Hong Dao not only quickly gained her balance on the surfboard but was also able to use her hands to form a heart. For her part, artist Thanh Thuy showed off her balancing skills on the surfboard while blowing kisses and striking various poses. “Too good,” journalist Lai Van Sam had to applaud in admiration.
