The Shenzhen Eastern Area from Dameisha to Dapeng offers a variety of water's condition to all levels. Not far away, Pinghai - Huizhou has got even better conditions.

I know boards in China are expensive but I don't want to make any money, just get what I paid back. The board was 460 usd, double board bag was 120 usd, 2 leashes at 27 usd each and fins for 30 usd, which is 664 USD. I'll throw in wax and sunscreen, all in for 650 USD. 650 USD all in is an amount but it's not 2nd hand and alternatives are tough to come by.


If you want to come and have a look and a beer, I'm in Fuyuan British American School (formerly FEC International School), Fuyuan, Bao’an, Shenzhen,


My phone number is 13189753680 and I'm free in the evenings or the weekend. next week I'll be sticking around in Shenzhen so anytime, come round.


Take it easy,

I'm selling a board in Shenzhen.

It is custom made. Wider in the nose like a minimal to catch waves easier and with enough volume. Perfect for 2-6 foot beach break. I dunno if you'll get 6 foot beachbreak in China but I know they get 2-4 foot in Southwest Shenzhen. A swallow tail to make it loose like a shortboard.


That's why I like funboards so much. So easy to catch waves and when you're up the fly and carve like shortboards, what you can't do on mals. If you're a ripper they don't have that radical manoueverability, but then I never was; I'm only a big wave surfer and pretty crappy on 6.0s. It would be a perfect step up from a minimal.

Fall - Winter is definitely the best time in Shenzhen to practice wind sports. The wind was ON from November 7-8-9.

Friday we were blessed with 20+ knots of wind and 5 feet wave in Dongchong Mike was comfortable with hi 8M while super muscle Jeff was fighting with his 12!

Saturday was the day for Daniel coming from GZ to have his first kite lessons with me. Due to the rain and cold we drove to Pinghai to find some North Wind. 

Sunday back to Dongchong where strong North Wind was blowing heavy gusts up to 30 knots early in the morning, then Switched N-E with an amazing blue sky and clean water. The Sunday ended at Villa Cardamone with a big pasta bowl shared with fellow surfers - kiteboarder Jorge and Lolis. The coming weeks look even better, so anybody ready for some action, join us!

Good Day, I'm benjamin & based on comments by Daniel yesterday, wondering whether Pinghai / Xun Liao is often kited.

I purchased a boat and the secluded islands across my apartment has got some clear water with great winds blowing from the ocean and really flat water which seems great for kiting. Unfortunately for me, I'm a beginner in kite surfing (12m vector) so was wondering for some company to make this place a spot for kiting.

Here are the photos of the latest trip in Pinghai / Huizhou. Only 130 km from Shenzhen, it offers amazing conditions for all rider's style. Flat water, waves, beginners, SUP and surfers. Stoked!
