Take the lantau ferry from the central ferry pier on HK island. If youre taking your board you have to take the slow ferry which takes around an hour but does not go as frequently as the usual. It is worth getting a ferry timetable.

Perfect when typhoon has died down. Doesnt really get choppy but the waves start crumbling and become over powering.
Is always quiet and waves are generally verry good. Not often very hollow but powerfull and fast. Best in the winter months as are all the spots in hong kong. However gets very good during typhoons in the summer months.
There is a few old ladies that will sell you drinks from an outside fridge. Mind the packs of dogs, roudy but harmless.

surf - yeah mate its a good place but gets rough in middle of storms. probably best just before or after. you cant really rent a board in central but you could organise a rental at tai long wan (shek o) for a couple days im sure. Daz

Hey! - I lived in Hong Kong for 10 years but haven't surfed there. I'm going back this July-August and am wondering if this is a good spot to surf, for beginners (i've surfed about 10 times in 2 weeks in Costa Rica this January). If I decided to go there, where can I rent a surfboard (somewhere in Central before I get on the ferry, perhaps)?
