Hi guys, I am in Hainan right now, I 'd be really pleased if anyone could told me more about the Japanese surfing school. Since I am just a beginner. I will really like to join your surfing trip in Hainan.

Hello Francesco.  I just arrived in Zhuhai from Canada to teach english.  I am a surfer as well and was really hoping to live close to waves.  Every weekend I go to a beach in Zhuhai to surf!!! The waves are small right now but they will progressively become larger and since there are only a small number of foreign surfers, you never have to worry about missing a wave!!!! Zhuhai is located next to Macau and it's very cheap to travel around once you are here.  I am planning to surf Hainan when I can catch a flight soon.  Feel free to e-mail me if you have any more questions.  Cheers, Jayanna

Cheers, Philipp

Graham--My son and friend (both 17) want to go surfing in Hainan in June with a program called Hainan Surfing World with Bryan Lukas, who is just starting this program.  He's from Hawaii. Have you heard of him or this program? What have you heard? They would be staying at the Kangle Hotel near the Hot Springs. Any information would be great!

Hi Kimberley,
Graham here, I have surfed that area, it's got great waves, I coached surfing in Aus, if your unsure about the guy your organising check out his coaching credentials, how long he's been doing it, safety points, references, etc. All common sense stuff. In Australia we have a National coaches registration program with Surfing Australia. We have hundreds, if not several thousands who are registered with it. I'm not sure, I think the USA has a similar coaching program. I'll be in Hainan for 2 months from the 19th of June, I'm not there to coach though.

Good Luck GRAHAM

Hi Graham,
It's baz from Long Reef. Steve & I are just back from Indo. The place is infested with small armies opf Dutch/German & Swede surfers - nice people but downright dangerous in the water. We met one crew, who could barely surf, they proudly announced over a Bintang or 6 that they were on there way to G-Land!!!
Anyway, it's too crowded ( Kuta Reef & Airports Left with 40 to 60 on it, forget Ulu's) and Hainan beckons.  Send an E-mail to with some info: how your finding it, fares from Oz, accom, girls and the like.
