HONEYMOON BAR. Alternative surf cullure
It might be difficult to picture the Califor≠nian surfing lifestyle located
on a beach in northeast Taiwan. Nevertheless, thatís why Tahsi ó often referred
to by its English name, Honeymoon Bay ó has such a strong appeal with those
surfers travelling around Asia looking for something slightly different. For
non-surfers, the beach itself makes for a pleasant experience ó a semi≠black
sand beach thatís remarkably unspoilt and strangely attractive. Framed by
rugged hills on all sides, it resembles a scene from a Chinese landscape painting.
But thatís not why itís sought out by wave riders.
The beach faces east, straight out into the Pacific, and picks up any swells
that roll in, resulting in some of the best surfing conditions in the country.
Stop by Jeffís Surf Shop if you want to rent a longboard or need a stick of
Sex Wax. When itís time to wind down after a hard dayís wave-catching, head
for the nearby Honeymoon Bay Surf Center ó a typical surferís hangout run
by Jeffís brother, Tom. The Center offers Chinese home-style cooking, and
a relaxing environment where you can kick back with some surf videos or talk
wicked waves over a few cold ales.
