I'm in Busan for a couple of days and I've tried to find 'Surfers Paradise' surf shop with no joy. Can you give me any directions?

You could definitely find nice waves in Jeju island (south coast, the beach close to Shilla hotel). Got some pretty good ones just after a typhoon. Could not find any board (had some fins in my luggage > bodysurfing).

I am a South African surfer living on the North East coast, in a little fishing village just north of Gangneung. There are Korean guys here who have started a surfing club at 38th Parallel. We all surf together almost every weekend,so there is definitely surf here. It's freezing in winter, but good, spring is even better.

The east coast is the best in winter and I think Busan and Jeju are the best in spring and summer. I will upload some photos for you to see. If you on facebook there are 2 groups for surfers in Korea. One is called Seoul boardriders and the other one is...crap I cant remember, but it will be linked to the first one I mentioned. I have met a local guy called Eugene who's english is flawless and he has started a surf club called "surfers heaven".He is located on the east coast at the 38th parallell. He has boards and wetsuits and stuff too.
Let me know if you amped for some waves here and we can hook you up..The waves can get pretty fun and sometimes really frikkin good too!
