About Terry

Terry was one of the earliest foreign surfers to settle on the Hengchun Peninsula.  Having traveled all over the world to surf, Terry came to Taiwan in the late 1990s and fell in love with the people, the culture, the food and the waves.  He and his wife Ee founded Island Rhythm Tours in 2007,  originally called The Surf Shack Bar, Grill and Surf Hostel

Asif came to Taiwan from Montreal in 1999  to teach English for a year and somehow never escaped.  He is an avid traveler, bodyboarder, chess player and motorcyclist as well as being a barbecue and dessert aficionado. He speaks English and French in addition to passable Mandarin, Gujarati and Swahili.

About Sunny at Island Rhythm Tours

Sunny is Taiwanese born and raised. She has been in the tourist industry since graduating university in Kaohsiung when she went to work for Club Med in Indonesia, Japan and the Maldives. Her time in the Maldives was cut short by the tsunami in 2004 that flooded the resort and forced its evacuation. Her and Asif moved down to the Kenting area in 2007 after growing tired of city life. Sunny’s hobbies are growing food (organically), eating food, making food, talking about food. When you go to the night market, its best to have her along!
