English (Traduisez ce texte en Français): Bashiendong is actually a point formed by a rivermouth. You may find the water a little chilly when you get in, but don't worry, you'll paddle out of the cold brown river stream and into the typical blue Taiwan east coast bathwater. The N tradewinds that put funk on a lot of good surf along the coast are offshore here and groom the left-handers that roll around the point.
On a typical day with Head-High trade swell, you can expect some gutless outside sets that you can catch well off the point. The wave backs off, and you'll find yourself digging right after takeoff just to keep riding, before reversing and getting a warbly left-hand shoulder that's whackable all the way to the beach but never really throws.
The inside is smaller and punchier with an occasional nice almond-shaped duck-in barrel. The shoulder moves fairly slow, but don't get buried behind it or you'll get rolled onto the shore boulders. Nut up!
There tends to be a N-S current during typical winter NE and tradeswell, but the wave breaks in the same spot all the time so you won't drift away.
During S-SE and close-in Typhoon swells, the spot closes out and a powerful rip sets up off the beach. Steer clear.
Surf is pretty consistent during winter months, but it can get flat and turn into unridable ripples breaking on the rocks at WH and below during the summer.
Bigger days can see really good conditions on the point and bowel-shaking sandmonster shorey on a beach south of the point. Probably not ridable except for insane bodyboarders.
English (Traduisez ce texte en Français): The boulders and currents make this a spot for experienced surfers only. On a weekend you'll probably see one or two friendly local Taiwan surfers who've got the spot wired, but otherwise it can be a lonely place, despite the busloads of tourists arriving to see the caves.
If you catch it on, surf yourself silly, then grab a squid dinner at the resturant and watch it reel with a couple of big bottles of Taiwan Beer. Ahh...
English (Traduisez ce texte en Français): Bashiendong is a nice solid spot if you live nearby, but it's not really worth a pilgrimage down the 11 if you're not already in the area. Remote, fun, often offshore, and uncrowded, it delivers the goods consistently, but there are a lot of better gems to be uncovered for Taiwan sufers.

careful on the roads - just be wary of the shore-pound on heavier days, it's HELLACIOUS. btw, your driving along the coastal highway puts you in innumerable sketchy spots compared to the rips. seems road saftey ed. ought to take priority when the idea of ocean recreation is, for the most part, a foreign concept.

Just wondering - I was traveling on the east coast with my wife when I first saw this spot. It was going off and absolutely empty. I asked some locals if anyone surfed in the area. They all said it was too dangerous due to rips and undertow. My wife, who is Taiwanese said that in school they were taught that the east coast was dangerous in this way as a rule of thumb. Does anyone know the truth about this specific area?
