Jeju Island (South Korea) is one-hour flight from Seoul. Jeju is a volcanic island that has kept traditional Korean cultural identity in houses and lifestyle. Most beaches are made of black lava stones; some are sand covered. Jeju is renown for Stones, Winds and Women. Lava stones are pilled on the ocean-side roads as wishing-good-luck monuments. Winds are often strong and can change directions many times during the day. Women are diving to catch seafood / shellfish and selling them on the roadsides. You can see them getting out of a small creek with in wetsuit and goggles!

There are 4 surfable areas:
- The Point: a stony point break with left and right wrapping around. It is fast and hollow. No sand bottom. The right has a big rock that will get in your way, it that can only be seen at low tide.
- The Left, which is at the beach access, is the smaller wave. It’s peeling OK and can finish in a hollow wave on the sand bar.
- The Center Peak: is and inside wave with left and right. Can get very hollow and sucky when it hits the sand bar.
- The Outside: mellow A-framed take-off that will connect with the inside and get hollow if the swell is bigger than 5’.
Beware of the very strong current (West before and East after the sand bar). There is also a rip current to the outside on the channel that is right of the beach.
The Center and Outside are quite consistent; even if they are sand covered reef-rocks.
It’s pretty much protected from the offshore winds with the cliff. Side shores will clean-up waves.
Better at low tide.
The setting is beautiful with a steep & high moss-covered lava cliff divided by a small waterfall in the middle of the beach. The beach is reef-rocky sand covered with a big sand dune “glued” onto the cliff. Beach can be packed on WE. Few surfers during the week and couple of surfers on the WE.
Lot’s of wave options here but overall not too long and not very powerful. Depending on your mood or style, you will certainly find one you like.

Not that great - Can get exceptionally good all over- point, shore and beachbreak - with the right swell and direction. The other 360 days a year it's shitty and messy and you have to contend with some of the worst cockhead locals you'll ever encounter. A few of them can actually surf pretty well, but most of them are posers with no idea what the sport is about. Don't be surprised if you get pushed, have your leash pulled and be shouted at in the water. For all that hassle and the quality of the wave on an average day, not really worth the paddle.
