Atmosphere

This spot is where all the Taitung foreign locals surf all winter. It is their bread and butter. These guys are all soul surfers which is cool but none of them rip and there are a few kooks.

fickle but.... - ...had this place grinding off for 200m's. heavy rain will determine everything

By anonymous , 27-02-2006

- I remember Dong-he back in the 40's when I fled China for Formosa. Brought my 12 foot Shanghai tanker and ripped the place up for at least three generations before the Wai guo ren started showing up. I now live above the break, in a nice little San He Yuen, and usually surf a secret left bowl north of there. I'm now 95, but I still shoot the curl like Gerry Lopez on Javanese Mescalin.
