November 29th – 11 月 29 日
Due to the many pressure systems happening around the area October was a busy month. Starting with a crowded and rainy national holiday week Hainan celebrate 61 years of the PRC with huge Typhoon waves followed by a consistent swell for the whole month.
Unfortunately these storms brought so much rain and many rural areas got flooded. and damaged by mud slides from the mountains.
On the way to Houhai after the rainy days
Giving a lesson on crowded Dadonghai during the National Holiday
The east coast worked consistently everyday so we leaved Dadonghai and had many surf trips to the beautiful Riyuewan, my favourite spot of the Island until now.
My first lesson in Riyuewan
October swell at Riyuewan was pretty big, some days got to double over head. Here you have some of our surf session pics at the point break:
This was my first session at Riyuewan, it was a bit big for my standards. But wasn’t the biggest day of the month at all.
Ah Wang, local Riyuewan surfer becoming a pretty good longboarder

Two boards broke that day
We also had some sunny mellow sessions:
