Surfing China







Surfing China

In 2009 I had the pleasure of competing in the surfing Hainan open. I flew 1 hour from Guangzhou to Sanya, which is the capital of the Chinese province of Hainan (population 11 million and still uncrowded).

Hainan known by many, as China's Hawaii, due to the island lifestyle, palm trees, holiday makers, lots of floral prints, not to mention beautiful long pristine beaches. Yes thats right, China has beautiful beaches. Including, for those lucky enough to experience, perfect sand bottom point breaks with reeling waves.

I was one of those very lucky people who got to experience what the island of Hainan had to offer. Attached is the website of surfing Hainan, Brendan and Dahai run the show down there and most of all they're passionate about surfing.
