If you're certified, why not work for an international school (like in Taipei or Kaohsiung) where you're more likely to have steady hours and definitely weekends free than to go through a recruiter who is only going to take the money you should be taking home yourself?  Hell, I only have to work 4 days a week at my school...with Tuesdays and weekends off.
Anywho, I'm new to surfing as I took lessons in Kuta this summer and I am looking to hook up with someone who can help coach me so I can get better.  I will be down in Kenting during Double Ten Weekend, hoping to get some surfing in and maybe meet up with others.  I'll get an extra long weekend since I have Tuesdays off so I can get in 4 days' worth.  And is it true that there's some surfing in Tamshui near Baishaowan?

So,

Are the waves the most consistent during the winter (Nov - Feb) and biggest during the summer (June - September)  with typhoons? I could have my seasons mixed up here.

I know a French Canadian living in Taipei area (Dec. 2005). He's a pro windsurfer, but teaches surfing during the summer in Hawaii. I'm sure he can give lessons. (He usually windsurfs in Chu-Nan on weekends.) His e-mail is sansoucy_alexandre@hotmail.com.

pumping? longboard waves? beach breaks?

« Reply #7 on: May 18 2006 08:05:00 »

Hey guys.
I'm thinking of heading to Taiwan to teach in a year or so. I read the previous posts and all the adjectives don't anwser my question. How big does it get? overhead? any tales of barrels? If it's beachbreaks, how powerful are the waves? the talk of lonboard waves make me presume it's weak? Any comparisons? european beachbreaks? indonesian pefrect barrels (lets not get too hopeful here).
Also, anyone know of international universities over there(teaching in English), I currently live and study in Bangkok, Thailand. Any tips on how good there system would be a great help as if I can study and surf I might transfer.
Cheers,
