 Access

Take the lantau ferry from the central ferry pier on HK island. If youre taking your board you have to take the slow ferry which takes around an hour but does not go as frequently as the usual. It is worth getting a ferry timetable.
From the lantau ferry pier ask a taxi to take you to Tai Long Wan which costs around $100. Buses wont accept you with a board, however body boards are okay. Once in Tai Long Wan village you'll hear the waves, just walk along the little path to the beach.

surf - yeah mate its a good place but gets rough in middle of storms. probably best just before or after. you cant really rent a board in central but you could organise a rental at tai long wan (shek o) for a couple days im sure. Daz

Hey! - I lived in Hong Kong for 10 years but haven't surfed there. I'm going back this July-August and am wondering if this is a good spot to surf, for beginners (i've surfed about 10 times in 2 weeks in Costa Rica this January). If I decided to go there, where can I rent a surfboard (somewhere in Central before I get on the ferry, perhaps)?
