 Additional Information

The Mazu Eikon is the huge goddess statue in Shantou at the public "Dragon and Tiger Beach Park" in front of the Citic hotel (Zhongxin dujiachun jiudian).

The beach is set in the middle of a crescent-shaped bay with a shallow outer sand bar. Deep water "dead zone" lies between the beach and the outer bar. The beach is public, but you must pay about 40RMB for a pass. If you stay at the Citic hotel (350RMB-800RMB) the hotel will include your beach pass.

Atmosphere

Nobody comes here to find surf, but if you find yourself in the area, you should watch the weather and look for cold fronts or tropical systems. I timed a tropical storm that passed south of Hainan and I scored glassy, hollow, chest to head high LONG sandbar waves that looked like huge boat wakes! Honestly, I think the swell peaked the day before I got there.

General

There is often 3ft of waves, wind's not always right but overall there is enough to play with a longboard all year round. The trick is timing for the good days. If you score you will have the whole place to yourself. The water is warm, the sand is nice, there are showers and food and cold beer.

Mazu Eikon - I moved to Shantou since April '10 and I guess am a local now :D
There is actually a beach (next to small shrimp farm) just after Mazu Eikon where one doesn't need to pay to access the beach. If you're in the area don't hesitate to drop me an email as there are other spots and we can always hang out for a beer or 2...
