Ask any cabbie to take you to "Gyongpo Beach" Just after you pass Gyongpo Lake you'll see an entrance to the beach with a stone dolphin marking the way in.

There's a main bathroom area on the beach, tons of fish restaurants... There's a fun sandbar to the right of the main big rock you can see from shore. The rock is not a hazard at all.. maybe you can night surf there since they light the rock up at night? Lot's of food and beverages right on the beach.
Surfing in the summer is prohibited by lifeguards in little red speedos... that's ok, fall winter and spring get way more waves.. winter is probably most consistient, but sometimes too huge to make the paddle out. expect lots of spectators and not another soul in the water with you. Surfing is Korea is just taking off.. they'll have to be a pretty comitted bunch to put up ith the falt spells gyongpo gets. most of the local surfers are foreigners (english teachers, etc). Bring a 5 mil wettie and thick boots and gloves, plus lots of wax and resin cuz there aint no where to get that kind of stuff out here. probably an extra leash too. There are NO CROWDS in the water in Korea.. maybe a few exceptions but generally desolate and all for you..
