Base 56 is really like a secret base. The entrance sign is not very obvious. Xie Wendy almost missed the entrance the first time she came!

Although the environment and equipment of the base are simple, they have everything you need. There are even bathrooms with hot water for changing clothes and simple washing, and there are password-locked lockers for temporarily storing valuables.

The blue and white container house is currently under construction and is expected to be used as a guest lounge in the future. The boss also mentioned that other spaces and circulation lines will be readjusted to provide a more comfortable environment for guests.

The main place to experience Hualien Stand Up Paddle is in the sea off Qingshui Cliff, and it will only be moved to Liyu Lake when the sea conditions are bad or in autumn and winter. The Hualien SUP at Base 56 has three sessions: Charming Sunrise Tour, Energetic Sunshine Tour (morning tour), and leisurely afternoon tour.

Analysis of characteristics of each session

The most popular among them is the sunrise group, which has the most changes in light and shadow levels, the weather is relatively comfortable, but also has the most people; the morning group has better lighting and fewer people; the afternoon group does not need to get up early, and there are fewer crowds, so you can take aerial views. Each session has its own advantages and disadvantages, and the difficulty of standing will depend on the sea conditions that day.

Choose a SUP board suitable for beginners

However, Base 56 will specially select wider SUP boards for guests to use. The width can accommodate two people per board, and the stability is high, making it suitable for novices to stand on.

I heard that I plan to purchase some boards with special colors in the future to make the photos more distinctive. Wendy Xie is very much looking forward to her next visit!

There are also a variety of activities to choose from besides SUP

The meeting point and experience location are about a 3-minute drive away.

Detailed introduction of actions before entering the water

Before entering the water, we will give a more detailed introduction to the SUP board, and the instructor will actually demonstrate the movements on the board, so that we can be mentally prepared for how to deal with getting on and off the board, entering and exiting waves, or accidentally falling into the water.

Finally, with the help of the coach, I got on the board one by one, went out to sea, slowly rowed to the sea, and then tried to sit up on my own. Basically, the instructor will demonstrate the movements first and give very clear instructions, so even beginners can get started quickly.

Basic SUP gameplay to get started quickly

[Review of No. 56 Base] A secret base for outdoor activities in Hualien, with knowledgeable coaches taking you SUP 22

The basic way to play SUP is to paddle in different postures such as sitting, kneeling, and standing. You can experience paddling at different heights and view the scenery from different angles.

As long as the waves are not particularly big, novices can basically follow the instructions of the coach at Base 56 to stand up and row successfully, but they need to bend their legs slightly and use a little force on their muscles to help balance.

It doesn't matter if you accidentally fall into the water (it's normal). As long as you remember to wear a life jacket, you are safe, relax and enjoy it. The instructor will slowly guide you on how to get back on the board, allowing Xie Wendi to have a great time.

Fun advanced SUP gameplay

After trying out the basic gameplay, the coaches of the No. 56 base will design different small games at sea, such as doing simple yoga moves and water fights at sea, depending on the situation and the number of people.Basically, you just need to relax and enjoy the whole SUP experience, and leave the rest to the coach!

If there are a large number of people, the boards will be arranged in different ways, such as joining the boards together, forming a row or a circle, etc. to play games with everyone. Even if Wendy comes alone, she will mingle with everyone. If it is a group of friends, family travel, employees It will definitely be more fun when groups of many people, such as tourism, come together to play together.

If you don’t want to participate in group activities, you can inform the coach in advance or decline immediately. The coach will not force you. The most important thing is to have fun!

The coach has complete control over emergencies

During this experience, someone felt unwell. At the beginning, the coach suggested that she look more at the distant mountain scenery or try to wake up in the water. He also kept reassuring her that she was almost at her destination. Prioritize the situation by "encouraging" and "guiding guests to solve the situation". If there is really no way to improve it, the coach will adjust the itinerary according to the situation.

The entire itinerary will be customized and adjusted at any time according to the guest's situation, so there is no need to insist on it. If there are a large number of people, there is usually not only one coach, but they can be handled separately with flexibility.

The coach helps you shoot SUP blockbusters

In addition to being careful, Xie Wendi’s highest praise for Base 56 is that the coach is very good at taking advantage of opportunities to capture the most natural figure. Even people who are not good at facing the camera will definitely have good photos.

Of course, the coach will also arrange special photo shoots at fixed spots. Not only is he experienced and good at framing, he will also provide action guidance. Even though he didn’t spend a lot of time taking photos, he still got a lot of beautiful photos.

At sea, I basically use GoPro to take photos and videos. On shore, I will also record and help guests take photos with the SUP board. Sometimes I will also use a monocular and aerial camera. I am not sloppy at all when it comes to camera equipment.

Throughout the experience, we can feel that Base 56 has put a lot of effort into improving the customer experience, whether it is photography equipment, post-production and retouching, and sufficient coaches. We are also preparing a rest area to have a comfortable environment for everyone to chat. , increase the interaction between the store and the guests or guests.

From the interaction with the coach and the store, Wendy Xie also felt the care with which the coach treats each customer. Facing different combinations of guests with different personalities, traveling alone or in groups, the coaches try their best to meet different needs. The owner Xiao Gu is also proud that Base 56 has many repeat customers. Many guests who have experienced it will visit again or recommend it to friends.

SUP recommended outfits

Base No. 56 has special reminders about what to wear when taking photos. It is recommended to prioritize comfort and ease. If you feel relaxed and comfortable, the photos will naturally be beautiful.

If you care about the overall color matching, it is recommended to avoid bright/fluorescent colors, or earthy yellows and grass greens that are too similar to the background. In principle, with mountains and sea as the background, it will be beautiful no matter how you shoot! Base 56 will also help with simple post-production in the end to make the photos appear more ideal. Wendy Xie is very satisfied with it!

Mystery guest evaluation

Wendy Xie has participated in other Hualien SUP experiences before, and feels that the most impressive thing about Base 56 is the time control.

The timetable for explaining and demonstrating the basic movements before entering the water is just right, so that you can have a basic understanding of SUP paddles without feeling too lengthy. While at sea, the instructor will introduce the surrounding environment of Qingshui Cliff from time to time, arrange small games at the right time, or adjust the itinerary. During these processes, he also remembers to naturally capture everyone's interactions, or help everyone take turns to arrange time to take individual photos.

Although Hualien SUP is usually organized in groups, there is no dilemma of “waiting for others to take photos while having nothing to do”.From the control of these details, you can really feel that the coach pays great attention to each guest's situation, and is able to make arrangements that are most suitable for the moment without delaying other people's time. This is a satisfying Hualien SUP recommendation!
