More infos 

English (Translate this text in English): the winds here can get ridiculously strong as the northern high pressure funnels wind down the east and west sides of Taiwan. Typically the east side is more sheltered but down on the kenting tip the winds search for a place to cross the peninsula. one of those places is chipeng (jiupeng). look for a direction of NE/E for the best setup. this usually blows from this direction from Sept/Oct to April/May.

 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): you can kite at either end of the beach. the northern end is easier to find and has a car park in front of a temple that gives you a perfect view of the beach. the southern end is a little harder to locate but if the winds are funky on the northern end of the beach it would be best to check the southern side out. waves can get 3-5m big but all over the place. it's like a zoo on a 25 knot plus day (frequently) but will provide excellent entertainment for wave riding or boosting big. watch out for a few submerged rocks on the northern end of the beach towards the sea wall. as luck would have it the waves are a little better up in this corner as well. the locals here are selling tours on 4x4 up the dunes so watch your gear and be respectful to the locals. the dunes can heat up to add an extra thermal kick as well so it's good to make an offering at the temple before going out.

you are completely on your own here and there is NO such thing as assistance. rips can be an issue on this side of the island. same with hammerhead sharks.
