Palms, warm water (22C in January) and long peeling point breaks: Hainan is the epicenter of Chinese surfing. In 2011, it's most famous left point, Riyue Bay, was selected by ASP as the contest field for the world women's longboarding final. From November to April the NE exposed spots around Wanning are surfable on a daily basis. In summertime the south exposed shores around Sanya make the most out of the frequent southerly swells and typhoons. Summer or winter, there's always a wave breaking somewhere along it's 1800km coastline.
