Daxi - I Just surfed here last week after a typhoon and got some good quality powerfull waves, if you look around there are some waves other than the beach if the swell is good.. I had read about the trouble on the site before going but didnt see any I surfed the beach for 2 days but just took the inside waves which were still super fun.. Def not the spot to turn up with mates and snake all the waves! be cool and you should have no trouble.. I stayed at a local surf shop which is also a club and had some really nice owners who took me for food, and frothed when the typhoon waves were on.. Cools surf shop..
Locals - If you're a kook, the locals at Dashi don't take notice. It's when a good foriegn surfer comes which compounds the fact that they have small dicks and hate white guys who steal all the girls at the bars. The beach is a dump as well.
What the F*#$ - Ok, thank you for the advice, but its absolutely useless. I asked about places to crash not about your personal opinions of Taiwan. This is a SURFING web site! Come on people, get it together. Another thing, I just went to Daxi two weeks ago and whoever talks smack about locals is way off. I caught it 4-8 ft. faces, the waves were pretty much all closeouts (except a right off to the south side of the beach), not that great, but that aside, everyone was totally cool.
Get out!! - Listen to the advice given to you; get out while you can!
- Sean, your best bet is to get outta taiwan alltogether. It's a desolate waste land.Cheers,Mike
places to crash - Anyone know of a cheap place to sleep for the weekend? I live in Changhua and am trying to get things set for when the typhoons start rolling in. I have a few boards, all I need in a clean floor.
Dont bother - It has its days, but I havent got a good wave there for over a year. Best to head down the coast, get away from the posers and thelocal eggs who think they be cool dudes
Guess I've Been Lucky - I keep hearing about angry locals at Dashi but I'm yet to see anything like it. Every time I go there I get some waves and usually meet at least one local and strike up a friendly conversation.

Dashi Blows... - I am outta Taiwan now anyways. It sucks..... what a dump that island has turned into. Anyways, the bank is all screwed and it's an awful spot. Don't waste your time going to Dashi. If you see a big dude with a taiwanse flag covering half his board, kick him in the nuts for me.
- Spraypaint a portrait of Chaing Kai Shek on your board and you'll be in like Flynn. The Taiwanese revere the guy as a hybrid between Jesus and George Washington. No lie!
