GOGO Van. If you are bring a board, Gogo van may be an option. Download the app. Inexpensive, efficient but you should be carrying goods to use this service.
MTR and Bus. Please note the MTR and Double decker and other large buses will not accept surfboards.
Hong Kong is a very easy city to get around, but not so with a surfboard in hand. You may be able to get a 5’11 short board into a taxi, but any longer and you may be stuck. Always travel with a clean board sock so your wax won’t melt on the cabbies seat. Gogo van is worth a shot, these goods cans can transport longboards, seat 4 people, and the drivers should be, according to company rules, be efficient and courteous. You should have goods to carry, ie a surfboard, they are not people carriers like a taxi service. Download the app, plug n the route and size of goods, and expect a call from a driver in 5 minutes.
Board rentals are available in Big Wave Bay. Ho Lok AKA Coca Cola, run by “Big Brother” is a cool place with boards, wetsuits, lockers, food, cold as ice beer and a positive vibe. Be there or be square! And say hi from me!
