the bus stops right in front of the beach. the best break is right in front of the aquarium. get permission from the lifeguards and/or police, i had to sign a handwritten waiver. if it's big out, i.e. a typhoon, the lifeguards can't even swim out past the whitewash. you'll be on your own. absolutely no line up what-so-ever.
so they are real edgy about letting people go out. just go to the information center in the middle of the beach and ask for the head lifeguard and tell him that you wanna surf. some of the best waves of my life and no one to share it with but my one bud and the hundreds on shore that cheered us on, something right out of Endless Summer.
this spot rips if it is going off, otherwise it looks like a lake. there are two other breaks in Busan as well, they aren't hard to find, everyone knows where the beaches and waves are at, they just don't go in.
