Show up, park, and paddle out. It's a big beachbreak with random sandbars throughout the year depending on wind, waves, and tides. There's a rocky point at the south end of the beach, but it doesn't really hold a wave and actually tends to be sloppier down there than the sandbars to the north.
Jici is a pretty standard beachbreak, usually gutless and backing off. Most people surf down by the bathrooms and parking lot. You might find a better sandbar if you walk north, or you might not.
Typhoon swell, depending on the direction, can make this spot come alive, and then close out, so you're probably better off finding a better break if it's hitting. Jici is good for beginners and a day at the beach not centered around surfing.

Pay To Surf! >:( - There is now a toll to access the beach at Jici at least during the summer. 50NTD or about 1.50USD. You can try parking on the 11 up north and picking your way to the beach across the rice paddies if you're a cheapskate, or you can go to a better surf spot for free. Your call. Don't know the hours or dates that the toll collectors are around.
