It’s summer and surf’s up. There are a number of surfing spots in Korea, like Songjeong Beach, but the hottest spot for surfing is Yang Yang county in Gangwon-do. Since it only takes three hours to get there from Seoul, many surfers head out to this beach during the week. Famous surfing spots in Yang Yang include Gisamun, Jukdo and Namae. Gisamun is a great spot for short boards because it often has waves that are strong but not too big. The largest number of surf shops are in Jukdo, and it's a great spot for beginners who are still learning to surf. Last but not least, Namae has strong and large waves and is packed with surfers. This summer, why not give surfing a try and glide through the wind and the waves?
