Riyue Bay Surf Spots

Riyue Bay holds a variety of breaks in the 2 kilometer stretch near Surfing Hainan. Here are descriptions of some of the best spots in the area.

RiyueBayMap-01

A. Taiwanese Village
This left-hand point break is directly in front of the tourist attraction of the same name. With rocks sticking out on the inside, it is safer and generally better to surf at low tide. This spot was named in the Stormriders Guide as Yab-J (a backwards J-Bay) for it’s long peeling lefts. It can feature some barrel sections in good conditions. Best in fall/winter.
Level of Difficulty – High Intermediate to Advanced

B. Beachie
This beach break can be stong and powerful on big swells, and a mellow longboard wave on smaller swells. This is a good break for beginners, as during big swells the whitewater on the inside is easy for learning. It can be fast and hollow, but with a shifty peak, luck and patience are required. Works in all seasons.
Level of Difficulty – Beginners to Advanced

C. Main Point
A classic point break set up with long left handers. The site of the Surfing Hainan Open since 2007, as well as the Swatch Girls Pro and ISA event, this is probably Hainan’s longest-ridden wave. Relatively soft with an easy channel paddle out, this is a good spot for intermediate surfers to learn to manover on a point break wave. It can also get relatively crowded.
Works best in fall/winter, with some decent sections on south swells

Level of Difficulty – Intermediate to Advanced

MainPoint
D. Ghost Hotel
Arguably Hainan’s best wave, this left-hand point break can produce grinding barrels in the right conditions. It breaks most entirely on sand, but there are rocks on the inside which can make it quite dangerous, especially on a higher tide.
Works best in fall/winter, and still works pretty well in the summer
Level of Difficult – Advanced only

GhostHotel-01


E. Back Beach
A good stand-by when other spots are too small, this beach break serves up fast and and punchy waves. Because of the steep incline of the ocean floor, the waves here are usually a foot bigger than in other spots in Riyue Bay.
Works in all seasons
Level of Difficulty – Intermediate to Advanced

日月湾冲浪点

日月湾在两公里的海岸有几个很好的冲浪点。下面有说明

RiyueBayMap-01

A. 台湾村浪点

这个左手浪的浪点在台湾村旅游区的正前方。因为有很多礁石在浪扣的地方,所以退潮的时候比较安全。这个浪点因其绵延的左手浪在《Stormriders Guide》一书中被命名为Yab-J(J-Bay是南非的著名右手浪点,刚好与这里相反,所以把名称反过来了)。情况好的话这里还会有管浪。冬天的浪最好。
适合人群-中高级,资深浪手

B. 沙滩浪点

这个沙滩浪点在浪大的时候长而有力,浪小的时候则是柔软的长板浪。这里的浪很适合初学者,浪大时在浪花上很容易学会。尽管有时候浪很快很扣,但是只要耐心学,运气不错的话几个浪头过后就能掌握基本技巧了。全年浪况良好。

适合人群-所有人

C. 主浪点

经典的左手浪。这里是冲浪海南公开赛自07年以来的赛点,同时也是斯沃琪女子职业长板决赛和ISA比赛的浪点,是目前海南最长的浪点。相对来说这个点很容易划出去,而且中等水平的浪手可以在这里学习礁石浪。当然这里会相对拥挤一点。秋冬季节浪况最好,浪从南边来时也不错。

适合人群-中等到资深浪手

D. 鬼屋浪点

可以说这是海南最好的浪,浪况好的时候有惊人的浪管。鬼屋浪几乎扣在沙滩上,而且有很多礁石,所以非常危险,尤其是涨潮的时候。秋冬季节浪况最好,夏天仍然很好。

适合人群-资深浪手

E. 后滩浪点

当其他浪点的浪都很小的时候,这里是很好的替代浪点哦!由于这里海床陡峭,浪又大又有力,而且通常比日月湾其他浪点的浪高1尺多。全年浪况良好。

适合人群-中等到资深浪手
