any chance you can get the ld on boards and water temps in jeju when you get there and post on this board?
i heard jungmoon beach is the place to catch the best waves in jeju, and i've heard fall is the best time, but other people have said the water is pretty cold. so i'm looking for some first hand info about it, like if i need to bring a board/wetsuit or if they have a surf shop that rents stuff out.

I surfed there in May of 1992 with my pal Grant Shoemaker. I took Donald Takayama longboard with red and blue band on a white board for Korean colors. We got to Kimpo airport and customs agents took our surfboards becuase they had never seen them before. Cheju is a beautiful subtropic island with warm in the spring through summer. Chungmun Beach has a left reef/point and sandbars from waterfall run-off from the golf course at the Shilla. Below the Hyatt there is another little reef break. It's Typhoon surf so you have to be on it. I think Grant and I were the first people to surf there. My grandfather Dosan Ahn is on the 300 won postage stamp.

I am heading to Jeju on the 9/29 and am bringing my Kauai-shaped 8'6" and a 3.2 and a shorty. I think a fish or a gun might not be enough board if the waves are small, I'm just looking to have fun and shred a couple small to medium. But in the event something bigger comes along, hallejiujah. I'm just not expecting much. Hopefully something will be happening there - I'll be at Jungmun beach hol-ler.

i am a korean in san diego, i ve been surfing 1 year....anway. to get je-ju island fly is the best way, the price is reasonable and you do not need to worry about seasickness. Lastly, in korea from my experience if you go to north east there are some srufing spots.
most waves around northern east coast (dong-hae which means east sea) are pretty decent...one thing you should keep in mind to go over there is you gotta keep a distance from some of military towers..... ha ha ha...

Seo-hae(west sea) except one place i do not remeber the name of the beach...anyway all of the beaches along west sea is not suitable for surfing...
Lastly, je-ju island you can find some spots over there i would say Je-Ju is the best spot coz the weather is way better than any others in korea and chicks during summer season...just you will shout for joy.....the island is windy so that usually decent waves are occured...
Anyway, if you have any question about korea email me...
have fun dude....
