Where to go Skimboarding in Hong Kong?

Skimboarding is a sport, which involves riding a board on wet sand or shallow water. It has been described as a miscellaneous beach recreation activity and as a discipline of surfing.

The best spots for skimboarding are in Big Wave Bay and Shek O on the south part of Hong Kong Island. It' s only 30 minutes away from the city. Beach break is good in winter usually from October to March, as long as NE or East wind speed reaches force 4-5 (20-40 km/h).

In Hong Kong NE wind usually blows in winter, summer is mostly SW wind. Typhoon season is from July to October, before or after the typhoon beach break could be quite messy. In the same wind direction there is another beach you can go where better beach break is, Tai Long Wan at Sai Kung, this beach is much bigger and the water is very clean all year round, it is on northern part of New Territories, no access by car and you have to hike over an hour to reach the beach from Sai Kung Country Park, or you can take a 30 minutes sampan ride from Wong Shek Pier, but the boat people would not take you when the swell is too rough.

In summer when SW wind is here, you can go to Cheung Sha or Pui O on Lantau Island, near the airport. You need to go to Tung Chung then hire a taxi, it takes about 20 minutes from Tung Chung, the taxi driver usually ask for HK$10 extra for each board. Both beaches fairly close to each other and you should check out the beach break before getting off the taxi. Beach break there is generally softer so you're better off sand boarding . Check the weather report and make sure SW wind speed reaches force 4-5 (20-40 km/h); otherwise beach break are too small to ride.
