A great place to come hang out in the summer, lots of local surfers and people coming out from Seoul. They put on some good contests and events throughout the year.
When it's big here, you'll likely be the only one in the water. Great spot on big days, cause the rip by the jetty puts you right out the back.
A surfboard and wetsuit rental place has just been opened by a local named Eugene Lee at the 38th paralel rest stop (right on the beach). Eugene speaks fluent Korean and English and is very stoked and helpful. They surf year round and keep a heater in the clubhouse for frosty days.. cheap accomidation nearby and a very cool bunch of guys make this spot THE place to be on the north east coast during a ood swell.. especially for expats without the proper gear. Bus from Seoul to Hajodae beach runs pretty regular. It's 5 minutes from Hajodae. Ask for a "call van" from there or take a local bus (#322) heading south.
Picks up much more swell than spots south of it. If its 2 foot in Gangneung, it'll probably be 5-6 here.
