Atmosphere

I enjoy this spot very much!
Fisrt of all, this is the best spot in center of Taiwan, compared with north and south of Taiwan.
Secondly, It's very esay to drive to the spot. You only need to take highway 3, and get off the Chunan, and only 2KM.
Thirdly, due to the location is next to the habor, around the area, you can find a lot of fresh seafood. You can either buy fresh or eat there. (from10am to 6pm).
Finally, this spot is a quite long beach, and there are also a lot wind surfers!
Anyway, by any chance, you gotta go!

Chunan - This is my local surf spot. It can be a lot of fun, but the waves are very dependent on conditions. There are little to no waves during the summer, when the wind is mostly coming from the south. Chunan (also sometimes spelled Jhunan, and Zhunan) is mostly a Fall/Winter surf spot. It needs NE winds for good waves, and when the NE winds are blowing strong, you can get 6 feet waves. If you want to surf here regularly, you need a longboard in your quiver, for all the times when the waves aren't big/strong enough for a shortboard.

If you aren't driving, you can take the train to Chunan/Jhunan/Zhunan, and take a taxi to Jia ri zhi sen (假日之森), which is where Spot X Sport (the surf shop) is located. The trip from the train station to Spot is $150 NTD.

- Jhunan beach can be ok sometimes but it's usually washed out and windy. Nonetheless, the locals are cool and Spot 10 is a cool spot to relax. I haven't spotted crazy Alexander from Hawaii lately, word is gained 50 pounds and took up NASCAR...

Whats sup Formosa - This is more of a wind surfing beach,though you do get some messy choppy waves for your long board.On a good day you can get a chance to use your shortboard.This beach has Strong wind and rip,dark green water with low visibility.But There's a local dude called ah-dah who runs a surf shop there,check out his mad skills when he's out windsurfing with his mates, such as Crazy pete from Sinzoo and insane alexander from Hawaii.People are friendly and when there's no surf you can always chill at the surfshop with a drink called Ah-dah's anal fire.Peace and dont get caught inside.
