Extra information

Rules
None

This is one of the only safe places to ride in HK if you are an intermediate. All other locations are for advanced experienced riders who do not mind placing their lives at risk. All other spots are extremely dangerous due to the large, sharp obstacles on very small access beaches, if in fact there is a beach where you launch.
