If you think Hong Kong teritory is not enough, check the 234 Outlying Islands...the swell can be really good. Usually flat but can get up to 15-16 foot faces. A few secret spots with good solid bali type barrels, if you can find them can still get a few empty waves. Wetsuits for winter. X-mas is almost always good in the NE Monsoon seasons. Summer June-Aug is Typhoon season..huge swells. First timers just goto Big Wave Bay on HK Island and say Hi to a surfer and they will tune you in to the main breaks. Don't drop in unless you are a pro. Best time to surf is sunset or sunrise where crowds not too bad. Best is tide coming in for almost all breaks.

Tai Long Wan near Ham Tin - This was one amazing spot. There are two spots in Hong Kong with the same name: Big Wave BayBig Wave Bay in chinese is: Tai Long WanThis spot is very close to Ham Tin and to get there it is a 10 minutes boat ride and then 1h hike through the mountain

Big Wave Bay - Another lesson. Catched plenty of waves and time to try a shortboard. Good tips. The spot is quite crowded but people really friendly. Beginners are welcomed by experienced surfers. That is a real plus.

New surf school in Hong Kong - There is a new surf school and shop opened in Sai Wan Tai Long Wan. They provide lessons and hire gear and are based in Big Wave Bay so could be useful to members of this site. Its called Surf Hong Kong. Kevin, the guy that runs it is a local Hong Kong surfer who has been surfing here for 10 years so can give you a heads up on most good surfing tips for surf.

hometown visit - A hometown visit is in order! Never looked up Hong Kong on here before and I have been on big wave bay when it was on, but waves were running so fast... literally just closeouts. I will fly in with my board next time I get a chance to go.... Haven't been for 10 years!
