Take the bus to Ingu from either Gangneung or Sokcho.Its relatively easy to get to Jukdo, if you travelling the closest big city is Gangneung or Sockcho, just go to the bus terminal and ask for a bus ticket to Ingu. When you get off there are two bays divided by a big hill/mountain with a temple on it. Jukdo is the one on the west side of the left side of the hill, the other side is Ingu beach, actually both bays can get fun beachbreaks.

It is a very small village so the only crowds you will experience are the local villagers standing on the beach being fascinated by the "Wegookin" (foreigner) in the waves. There are plenty of spots along this stretch of coastline and to explore them you can catch the 322 shuttle bus which stops at all the bays.
Try the restaurants on the beachfront for raw squid and Korean delicacies..if you want to stay for the night in the village ask for a "Mimbak" which is usually a family owned floor where you can sleep with a thin matress for a dollar.
This spot is getting popular in Korea for surfers
There are many new not only surf shops but also restaurants, surf items shops, accommodations etc
Lots of events during summer season. Unfortunately no good swell during summer season. But you can enjoy good wave in September to just before of summer season.
Good to say, you can enjoy winter surfing sometimes while snowing on beach.
