A pro surfer who coaches the Chinese National Surf Team and a tourism agency based in New Jersey plan a surfing expedition and training camp in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

They say the country has pristine beaches, virgin waves and the potential to become an international wave-riding destination.

Nik Zanella, a native of Italy who along with coaching Chinese surfers is a representative of the International Surfing Association, said the decision to hold the surfing camp for a small group of DPRK citiznens and foreign tourists along the country's east coast follows a year of studying the area to assess wave and weather conditions.
