Dulan Surf camp - Learn to surf in Dulan!

Surf lessons in a beautiful and safe environment

The mile long picturesque Dulan Beach is a great place to learn surfing. The waves are generally smaller and softer here, and the beach is mostly sand-bottom, making it the perfect place to learn. WaGaLiGong Dulan Surf Camp offers classes for both first-timers and those who have some surf experience but want to improve their skills.

What our students thought about us

This review is solely about WaGaLiGong as a surf school. Located right on Dulan main street you can’t miss WaGaLiGong. My girlfriend and me stayed in Dulan for a week. She was surfing a few times and it was my first time surfing. We had a lesson with Mark which was very, very informative and also very entertaining. Mark is just a force of nature and he transcends love for surfing and the ocean. At first you’ll learn a lot about bathymetry, which honestly helped me so much in my ongoing surf adventure. My girlfriend never heard of it until Marks lesson. Other topics include Surf-Lingo, Surf-Community, winds and weather systems and of course practical surfing. The lessons never go beyond 6 or 7 people and you get shuttled down to the beach for 500NT$ (600 for a whole day). We also had the pleasure of surfing with the very mellow and passionate guest instructor Simon Chipper at the time, who also helped us a lot with just a few tips and details on technique. After a week in Dulan both of us, transitioned to hardboards and were catching unbroken waves in other spots in Taiwan. So all in all, if you plan on doing a surf lesson or if you want to get infos about the spot (all the people working at WaGaLiGong are very nice) in Dulan you should defintely check out WaGaLiGong. They really sparked the fire in me, brah…

Having a nice surf lesson here!
It was my first time and it was fun, safe and very interesting with coach Mark and Yong-yi!
If you want to stay in Dulan for a few days, here will be a good choice, with a kitchen and a small refrigerator where you can cook if you want to.

On my trip to taiwan, I decided to learn surfing with Mark, and I’m real glad I did. He is an amazing teacher, who is willing to do his best to try and make you succeed in learning to surf. Not only does he cares for your safety, he also takes the extra effort to relate with you and really puts his whole heart into teaching me how to surf. He is very knowledgable about surfing and is a professional at his work. So if anyone would like to learn surfing, he is the right person to go to learn surfing. Thanks Mark

Went for a beginners surf lesson and was not only learning proper techniques of surfing but Mark also taught us information but would help us become ‘thinking’ and safe surfers in the future! Be receptive to his instructions and you’ll be definitely getting a great intro to surfing!

Great place and outstanding surf lessons! Super friendly and helpful owners

Delphine Pilate (Belgium)

We stayed 3 nights ( as a family) at the Wagaligong and had a great time!! The surfing in Dulan was definitely one of our highlights in the trip. Mark is an amazing professional surfing instructor and we enjoyed each moment with him. All the Wagaligong team including Mela, Mark, Tienie, his sweet wife, Emily and all the volunteers were so nice and helpful and though the place is simple with shared bathroom, it’s clean, convenient and our kids felt at home.

I had a surfing lesson with Mark and another visitor. It was my 3rd surfing lesson ever, but I found his emphasis on safety and understanding shoreline geography impressive. He really wants his students to know how to be safe and not become surfing casualties. He wants to make sure you feel comfortable enough in the sea waves so that you won’t panic – panic can cause more problems! I thought he was a really great teacher; understanding, patient, and encouraging.

Elissa Clumpner (United States)

Best surf lesson you can get in Taidong, or Taiwan! Mark was a fantastic teacher, take good care for us all the time, care about all the details and very patient. In the end of the class all of us can stand on board and surf few waves successfully. It was a very wonderful day!

Cindy Chang (Taiwan)

我喜歡Mark. 教練的課程,在教課程中會用輕鬆的方式讓你不緊張,同時在講解過程中也很仔細,一步一步帶著很快就學會衝浪!

<I like mark. Coach’s course, it will be easy for you to be relaxed in the course of teaching. At the same time, during the theory briefing, emphasis is on safety.>
