Hey,

I'll be in Taipei from the end of June till the beginning of July for a film festival...I'd love to get a lesson in surfing...I've only tried it once, at Daxi outside of Keelung in Taiwan (last year) but I'm a decent snowboarder (been riding since '88).

Anyone available to give lessons? I'm ready!

Alright mate,
I live in Keelung and have got some idea of what goes on up here. In taiwan basically you'd be best off getting a job in taitung or haulien. That said, you might struggle to get a job in those towns, I certainly did and thats why I'm now up north. There are waves about but best before/after a typhoon in the summer. At the moment it is flat flat flat...
If you're a cold water boy like me then the winter months will yield something. there are the obvious sports like dasi and wu-shi harbour but after that you'll need a scooter and patience.
Good luck and let me know if you're in the area, I'd be happy to show you around!

I have been looking into places where I would be able to teach English and do bodywork and surf. seems that most of the jobs are in big cities and most of the asian jobs require a one year contract. I am living in Mexico for part of the year now.. oh god, please don't make me go back to Canada!!! would love to find a contract for six months in a warm place i could teach and surf for june-january or so. I speak english, french and spanish.  if i get better at surfing i think i would prefer to teach surfing than english. or both..
