Surfs up in Korea

Surf's up in Gangwon Do.

Surfing is rapidly gaining popularity around South Korea, especially at beaches near the demilitarised zone (DMZ) separating it from North Korea.


I bet they'll make a Korean version of Point Break soon.
Catch my drift?

I've surfed here over the years and since childhood back home.
Surf is pretty inconsistent and sh*te over here, not to mention the hassle the fuzz give you when the waves only hint at getting decent.

Nice to see them enjoying themselves.

Looks kinda crowded at those designated beaches though.

Maybe someone could tell me: do the waves get biggest along the east coast, or off south Jeju?

Biggest waves I've surfed are up the NE coast, around YangYang. Place is called Gisamoon-hang (기사문항).
Problem is it closes out when it gets around 6ft.
