Issues with surfing are mainly getting a board and getting some time to chase a swell. Like this hurricane that is bearing down on Shanghai and the coastline is most definitely going to leave some swell.
I scouted this island called Gongjiadao off of Yintan area. You can find it next to Rushan south of Weihai and north of Qingdao region. If you look at the satellite map you can see a possible pointbreak setup and then this island which has rocky outcroppings which catch some surf. I've got a Russian girlfriend with an apartment up there so I may try to check it out in the future.
My main problem is sourcing a surfboard. So I am trying to get a hold of a Catch Surf "Super One" which I can easily travel with and not worry about damaging. Also I want to get a good handplane. Can you make any by chance? And if you can how much?
In Shanghai I've gotten some skating in, but no real good pictures. The terrain for it is incredible for it and there's a really good skate scene here. With the world's largest skate park and endless street possibilities I'm having fun with it, but its just been too damn hot (over 90+ for 2 months) to do anything. Here's a cool video about skating shanghai.http://pitythecool.com/2011/

.. this past spring a few of us have been discussing outerwear for snowskaters .. ..
This electric blue jacket is crazy soft, not to baggy, and warm , it even has a few bells and whistles; waist cord, headphone loops and iPod pocket, perfect for skating a resort or stashed in your pack while hiking ... This prototype is being tested somewhere in Idaho, if it gets the thumbs up, will post a bunch this fall ..
Thanks for checking in
