Surfing in the USA? No, Surfing in Korea!

Surfing is something quite common in the Western countries, but not as common in Korea because of the lack of strong waves or even the culture. But recently, passionate Korean surfers as well as foreigners started to dig the perfect surfing spots, which then made surfing pretty popular.

And of course, Trazy is now offering travelers the chance to experience it!

One of our Trazy users, Hui Jeong R went surfing on one fine day in Songjeong Beach, Busan. Let’s hear her story! :)

Flairman of the Board: Christian Wach Interview

Some would say the surfboard is already a work of art. Twenty-two-year old world class surfer, Christian Wach, sees it not only as a work of art, but also as a canvas for his brush.

BUSAN, SOUTH KOREA – Born in San Clemente, California in 1989, renowned surfer Christian Wach (pronounced “Wa”) first climbed on a surfboard at six-years-old. Not that it was much of a board, as he recalls.

“It was an old Capo Bay with the corkiest airbrush to match, duct taped rails and a semi-busted side fin.”


Kiteboarding in Busan, Korea

See video

Not many people are aware but Busan happens to be a great place for kiteboarding. Many Koreans and foreigners kite almost year round (October - June) at beaches such as Dadaepo and Jinha. Kiteboarding is a new sport that is growing rapidly in popularity. In the last couple years Kiteboarding technology has adapted to increase the excitement and safety of the sport. 

Busan is lucky to have a great IKO certified instructor. Dongnam Ryu featured in this video has been Kiting for over 7 years and has taught many Koreans and foreigners. His calm demeanor and experience make him an excellent teacher. The kite crew at Dadaepo are incredibly supportive and great guys to be around. Don't be surprised if they have some Makali waiting for you when you get out of the water. 

With lessons starting at $100 for the first day you cant miss out on this opportunity.
