Asia is host to an amazing mix of cultures, races, religions, traditions, and languages. To travel across Asia is like running through an amazing kaleidoscope of human diversity and variety.
Surfing is still relatively new in SE Asia, with many areas still unchartered by surf explorers. When surfing here you will be blessed with warm water, great weather, smiling faced locals and all at affordable prices.
At the same latitude as Hawaii, Taiwan is a large, lung-shaped island that offers several powerful points, river mouths, reefs, and beach breaks to the surfer who lucks into a solid typhoon swell or a Pacific groundswell.

Since the waves normally don’t get huge, your average shortboard will do just fine. An egg, longboard, or fish can come in handy, too.
Japan is not always top of the list for travelling surfers, but those who do make it to these shores are often rewarded.
Japan is an underrated country for surfing. Typhoon season sends beautiful swells from June until October.
This really depends on where you are going and if there are any surf shops nearby. If you are a beginner looking to rent all the equipment, or get some surfing lessons we recommend Happy Surfing Okinawa for all your needs.
Japan is a place that has to be experienced to be truly appreciated. With a reputation for having the driest powder in the world, and a snow season beginning as early as November and lasting into May, Japan is a world class destination for Skiers and snowboarders.
Japan has world class skiing and snowboarding on offer, and some of the best powder snow you will find anywhere in the world, with mountains that cater for all abilities. There are more ski resorts per capita in Japan than any other country in the world with most of the resorts receiving between 10 - 18 metres of snow per season on average.
It is possible to include all your ski equipment in your resort package at reasonable costs but keep in mind if you have big feet you might need to bring your boots from home.
