Taiwan sits strategically north of the Philippines and South West of Japan and is in perfect position to score the back-to-back swells that result from the northern hemisphere winter storms. The warm waters of Taiwan vary between 22-28 degrees all year round, so its boardies all the way. The peak season falls in the Aussie summer (November - March), so when we€™re battling onshore slop and holiday crowds, Taiwan is dishing up the goods for anyone willing to take the plunge. It€™s well worth the trip.
Taiwan is an everyman's surfing destination and Taiwan Surf Adventures places a huge emphasis on creating an itinerary that works for you. The mountainous island of Taiwan teems with people in thriving, modern cities, but at the same time offers picture-perfect natural vistas. As you jet into the city of Kaohsiung (just a short flight from Hong Kong), the island below greets you with majestic peaks, rolling hills and plains, basins and inlets, tropical beaches and green forests. High-rise buildings and ancient temples play backdrop to numerous traditional folk festivals and ceremonies. Old and new live in harmony in Taiwan. While the north of the country is heavily populated, the south and east coasts retain that laid back, countryside atmosphere of the days of old. Rice paddies, fish farms, temples and small towns dot the landscape. Lying on the Tropic of Cancer, Taiwan experiences a tropical marine climate (it€™s almost smack on the same latitude as Hawaii), which helps explain why the water is board-short friendly. And it has two different regions offering two wide swell windows.....
The East Coast has surf between November to March, collecting south heading swell from the northern hemisphere winter storms. The South of Taiwan (a peninsular) is open to a swell window from the SE to the SW and thrives on swells from a little as 100klms away to, well, as far as you can get. Pretty much the only piece of land to the east, between Taiwan and America, is Hawaii. That€™s a lot of ocean with huge fetch.
