Fengxian Mudhole , People's Republic of China

The water is high in sediment, visibility 10cm, pollution is there but acceptable. Never got really sick despite swallowing a lot. At high tide you have a 5 square km playground with chest deep water, at low tide you have to walk out a 1km or so, but then you find a channel with perfectly flat water. Generally you have quite a swell, some half to one meter waves. No surfing at all, kind of choppy also since the water is not really flat. Little waves with East winds. Since 2008, the local aothorities have put a very long "fish net" (2 meters high) that close the bay. So it is impossible to go to the open water. The spot is then only ridable at high tide when the water covers the area between the "fish net" and the shore breaker. The open accessible area is still large enough to have fun at high tide. Ugly promenade, enforced with a lot of concrete, kind of scary, some awful boulders protecting the 3m concrete wall, leg breaker we call them. Easy launch and land in low tide, a bit tricky in high tide. Southerlies are prevailing in summer. Usually best wind in the area, wind machines are there, in summer almost everyday, still Shanghai is a light wind region. In summer Southeast, in winter Northwest. Best is East, then there are little waves, and sideshore. Offshore is dangerous, no one would bother if you drift away, they would watch you drift out of sight and go home.
