BaNZ wrote:Apparently typhoon comes quite frequently during summer period. Two weeks ago there was a typhoon that went past Philippines as well. The wave was at least 7-8 feet tall and the frequency was too high, I rented a body board instead as I didn't feel like suiciding. There were still loads of people surfing and I thought they were nuts.
Hehe, you probably have some grey hairs for them to call you grandpa? hehe. Nanwan waves are small not as good as the ones in Jialeshuei. But I don't like that beach cos the stones are too big over there. I got my ankle caught between two stone and hit by a wave . It's been few months and I still haven't recovered from my injury.
There is a reason why that I'm worried about breaking the board. As can be seen from the photo attached. This two picture is taken around the same time on a weekend and only 10km apart. The crowded seems to be more beginner friendly. The waves are better and the sand goes quite far outside. But the surfers there doesn't have much etiquette, me and my friend got hit by two different board within 15 minutes of getting in the water. Saying that I have also taken a nose dive and the board came smashing down another surfer head. It seems to be the norm over there as they didn't even mind, they carried on paddling as if we weren't there. I'm planning to go to the crowded beach on weekday because I finish work at 5 and the sunset is around 7pm.
It's a pity that you didn't go to Taitung as I heard it has got the best wave in Taiwan. I was planning to go down to Kenting / nanwan at the end of July. But after seeing pictures of the beach on facebook. I don't think I will enjoy it. There is way too many people down there. If your friend is from afei shop then I probably know him already! I saw the picture you took and it is the place where I stayed a few months ago. But yes, it would be nice to meet your friend and get to know more locals here. I really like Kenting and was even looking to make it a holiday home.
