I havent seen many surfshops here..but there are two or three in Taipei/Shilin. They dont have lot of samples, couple of longbouards, shortboards and medium sized ones. They are around 20 000 NT, and simple coloured. But thats about it (what i've seen)

I'm actually going to be heading to South Africa in a couple months so I figure I'll buy a board there. Thanks for the info anyway.

It's a well kept secret...Penghu Isaland has great longboard surfing waves a one of its beaches. You need to be there in summer and during low tide. I run a small surf school there on weekends only. Mostly for the soldiers, and any visitors who come over for the weekends. It's a lot of fun and safe knee-high to shoulder-high sandy beach breaks on 40m-60m form the shore.
I also rent surfboards...soft beginner boards, and hardboard. Longboard, and fun boards. You're welcome here anytime.

Taipei's kind of a bitch if you don't have any ESL teaching experience but you'll still find work no problem, it'll probably just be a patchwork schedule working at a bunch of different schools. As far as living in Taiwan, I don't think Taipei's the place to go it's a pretty cool city but...I do some recruiting for the south of Taiwan so, if you want to teach in the South e-mail me: firstname.lastname@example.org (resume, photo). Ya, any questions, shoot.

az here from Australia, just on the verge of finising my teaching degree and cant wait to travel, get some waves around the world and teach a little aswell, how did you hook up with teaching and recruiting over there?

I ended up getting in touch with a recruiter, like I am now, by applying for jobs through e-mail before I came over. When I got here, I met up with him and got offered a job on this little island called Kinmen and stayed here for, what will be, a year. The recruiting part, well the agency that found me my job needed more help finding teachers. So, I post jobs online and try to get teachers to come teach at our schools (harder than it sounds). Right now I'm also looking for a good person to take over my job here in September 'cause I'm off to South Africa so, if you're interested or know anyone that would be let me know. So, hope that helps ya out dude, good luck and anymore questions, feel free.
