This is a tuff one. To the north of the city you'll find an army observation point atop the highest hill in the area. From here you can see the wave. Unfortunately this beach is surounded by a 3 metre tall razor wire fence and patrolled regularly in case of a North Korean beach invasion. You could possibly get over the fence on your own but you risk being shot as a North Korean spy if the guards notice you surfing. Your best bet is to seek permission from the nearest base which shouldn't be hard to find because there is one every 5 kilometres along this stretch of coast.

Keep an eye on typhoons and wait until there's one either in the northern corner of the East Sea (Sea of Japan) or very close to the south end of Japan and ROK.
You'd think Koreans would be spewin that their best beaches are fenced off like this but they don't seem to care. Surfing or even swimming isn't a big priority here and they probably know that they'd only trash the place if it was open to the public.
That's a nice wave on its day, about once a year.
