What you learn
You’ll learn how to read the ocean and admire the beauty of the sea, while paddling out on the board and surfing the summer waves.
In the surfing class we focus on how to ride your board, to catch the wave efficiently, to balance your body, and most importantly, to read the waves and to embrace the spirit of surfing.
Course agenda includes wave studying, surfing equipment knowledge, surf etiquette, and how to manage different situations. The instructor’ll design the program according to each participant’s level. The goal is to surf good waves, to have the most fun, and do it in a safe way.
Surfing package available for NT 7500/ 5 sessions. Contact us for more details.
$1600 for VD student
The course location and meeting time will vary according to the ocean conditions. Please contact instructor Michael for more details before booking the surf class.
The answer is “Yes” with a “But”. If you just wanna experience surfing, it is okay if you don’t swim well. I also have friends who love surfing but don’t know how to swim. After all, surfboard is a super float. But, for better experience of surfing and your own safety, I still recommend you to learn how to swim first.
From zero to “surf by yourself”, it may takes 2~3 lessons for most of the people to get the basic skills. But to “surf well” is a life-time journey. I always say that: “the best surfer is who enjoys the most”, and it doesn’t relate to your skills.
“Toucheng – Wushi” and “Jinshan – Zhongjiao bay” are the ideal places for beginner surfers. This two places have surf shops offering surfboard rental and shower facilities. Both locations have parking lots, and can be reached by bus. If you have your own surfboard and preferred surf spot to go, you can discuss with us.
For beginner level, the maximum number is 3 people in one time. If you are a non-swimmer, or if the waves are big, then the maximum is 2 people in one time. Safety first!
We try our best to keep track of weather reports. If the weather forecast isn’t looking good, the sessions will be rescheduled. Stay flexible.
We reserve the right to cancel/ reschedule the sessions if the ocean conditions are bad. Safety first, and full stop.
From July to October, typhoons frequently visit Taiwan. It is wise to keep flexible schedule when you sign up for freediving/surfing courses or any water activities.
