[Jeju_SPORTS] Surfing – Enjoying leisure sports on Jeju Island



The best place for surfing in South Korea is on Jeju Island.

Jeju is surrounded by the ocean and is influenced by a variety of currents making it ideal for the sport.

Surfing started back on the Polynesian island of Tahiti before moving over to Hawaii. Then from 1920 the Olympic gold medalist, Duke Kahanamoku, popularized the sport via his surfing around Waikiki Beach.

It is now a leisure sport enjoyed all over the world.

However, the first surfing club only arrived on Jeju in 1995 at Jungmun Beach.

Of course this beach is still famous for surfing and is the location for many international competitions. Yet there are other locations too.


Sagye Beach

This beach has special waves at low tides making it a good spot for surfers.

A ‘hot’ and popular place on Jeju at the moment. The emerald coloured ocean has waves and a row of pretty cafe eateries to enjoy afterwards.

This is the closest beach to Jeju City and Jeju International Airport. It is easy to access with availability in the winter months.

But what if you don’t have surfing equipment or experience?

Friendly surfing schools conveniently cater for beginners.
