Of his experience as a surfer in Korea, Donggi Kim writes on The Inertia:
After learning to surf in Australia, I returned home to Korea, and immediately began searching for waves. To my surprise, I found there were already a few small but well established surf communities–and the waves in Korea were pretty good, at least compared to what people thought. I realized then that there needed to be a website to show Korea’s surf scene, and started up YESiSURF.com Although I had different kinds of content, my videos always garnered more attention. That’s what encouraged me to create The Winter Surf. Along with Seong Eun Kim, we began the process of documenting the surf culture in South Korea. Enjoy.
Im sure many surfers have a similar story to mine. Once I started surfing, I was hooked. It all began when I visited Australia for studies. Truth be told, I spent more time in the ocean than I did in class. When I returned to Korea, I started searching for places to surf. To my surprise, I found that there were already established surfing communities. I started to surf more and more in Korea and also began traveling abroad in search of waves. After traveling to many countries for surf, I felt that the waves in Korea were pretty good compared to what people thought, and I realized that we needed a website to create more content in Korean.
