Surf in Taiwan

« on: April 17 2005 10:04:00 »

I am heading to Kenting around Chinese  Labor Day. Does anyone know if I need to ask someone to take around the spots or not? If yes, would be a big help to give some info on guides or shops. Thanks.

Hi Geral,
I'll be in Taiwan for the next 2 weeks, if you have an extra board I'll take you out surfing.

Does anyone know where a boardless traveller could catch some surf?

thanks

On the NE coast, the two most common spots for surfing are Daxi and Jin-shan. I have surfed Daxi. Sometimes it's ok for waves, but the problem is often the crowds - surfers intermingling (crashing into) with swimmers. It is a small village, but upside is a plethora of bikinis in the summer. Me and some buddies rent a place in Toucheng, which is about a 20 minute drive South of Daxi (10km North of Elan, 3km North of Jiao-shi, the hotsprings resort town up there). The waves are good there too. The biggest upside of Toucheng is that it is a small town, not a village, thus has more infrastructure (restaurants, supermarkets, tennis courts, paint-ball center, skate-boarding bowl, etc). There is a good little surf-shop just North in a town called Wai-ao.

I know that Penghu is great for windsurfing, and so I figure kiteboarding should be good there too. Kinmen has some decent windsurfing as well but Penghu's better. I've got a friend who lives on both Penghu and Kinmen and windsurfs a bunch so, I'll ask her about kiteboarding if you want.

Hey,

Does anyone know of any boards for sale in Taiwan. I'm looking for a bit of a bigger board but not a full on long board, maybe a minimal or hybrid type or, if I'm lucky, a longer short board. I'm 6'3" or 189cm so my buddy's 6'2" that I'm riding just doesn't cut it in small waves. Anyway, info, prices would be great.
thankx,
Brodie
