A tropical depression was anything but depressing! 6 Feet in Wu Shi Gang! A little mucky with the off shore wind but a nice taste of summer storm season.

This seems to be the best advice for first-timers. Anyone disagree and would like to recommend another place? We will need instruction, board rental, about a 1-hour drive from Taipei or less, and a shop or two in the area that sell surfer shirts (I burn easily).

It seems the surfer shirt is covered- 100 NT for the rental according to this ad.

Northcoast Surfer, thanks for the info. I went a few weeks ago and got some lessons. I went with my wife and kids (one is an infant). Perhaps you remember seeing me. It was a great experience! I was a little beat up but I definitely want to go a few more times. Thanks again!

There is a cool surfing hostel in Yilan owned by a taiwanese and foreigner from California who is great at teaching the ropes of surfing (and can really surf good) I'm not sure how much for lessons but if you talk to him he's a really laid back friendly guy! they have a website http://risingsunsurfinn.com

Damn you make me want to go back to Taiwan real hard. No fuckin' surfing here in Bavaria (if you don't count that one kinda artificial place at some Munich channel)
