Gopro ASP World Longboard Championships in Riyuebay, Wanning, Hainan Island, China

2014 Dec. 5- 12 in Riyuebay Wanning Hainan Island

 

Contacted by ASP Austrilian, we proudly worked on the rooms and transfers for Gopro ASP World Longboard Championships in Riyuebay, Wanning, Hainan Island.  Though it is just for rooms and transfers, but due to the location of the Riyuebay, we had some challenge organizing pick up and transfers services as there are 2 airports on Hainan Island: Haikou is the north and Sanya in the South. We learnt that as a surfing competitions, we need more flexibility on the cancellation and amendment policy from the hotels to save the cost of the young surfers.

 

    

 

The world’s best long boarders will once again hit the sands of China to compete at the prestigious ASP World Long board Championships. This year’s GoPro World Long board Championship, China presented by Wanning City Hainan Island will see a combined waiting period for both men’s and women’s events that will run from December 5 - 12 at the left-hand point break Riyue Bay, Hainan Island, China.

 The hostel receives tour groups, but most of them arrive late in the afternoon and leave the next morning right after breakfast. So during the day, it is really quite and empty

 

Four Points by Sheraton Shenzhou Peninsula Resort at USD120/night with breakfast, local and service charge included for 2 persons

    

 

Our recommendation would be to stay at the Four Points by Sheraton Shenzhou Peninsula, the level of comfort is a lot higher, rooms are clean, staff speak English, the quality of the food is good and there are a variety of options to eat (also breakfast is available from 5:30am each morning). Our past experiences at the 21 Century Hotel are, you get what you pay for – the rooms are okay but the beds are incredibly uncomfortable, food in particular is not very good, there is no or limited hot water in the rooms, staff do not speak English and everything must be paid for in cash (there are no cash machines at Riyue Bay), however we recognize that some of you are on a budget or would prefer to stay closer to the event site.

  

Transportations from Haikou/Sanya Airport to 21 Century Hotel on Riyuebay and Four Points by Sheraton Shenzhou Peninsula Resort:

For surfers arriving into Haikou/Sanya from 2-4 December, the event will arrange pick up from Sanya or Haikou airport to either the Four Points or 21 Century Hotels.  Likewise for surfers departing the event up until 14 December, the event will arrange transfers from the Four Points or 21 Century Hotels to Sanya/Haikou Airports.

If your flight arrives late in the evening at Sanya Airport, we would recommend the first night in Sanya at Sanya Summer Coast Hotel USD66/night in a standard twin room.

Visa’s

The advice we have received from the Government is that all athletes will need to travel on an Official Visit/F Visa for this year and should not travel on a Tourist/L Visa.

In order to apply for a F Visa you will need an official invite letter from the government. As such please forward a scanned/photo of your passport to Cindy May – cmay@aspworldtour.com immediately if you are attending the event. The process to receive the letter can take 5-7 days so we need to receive you passport details ASAP to ensure you receive your invite/visa letter in time!

*for more information on Chinese visas please see www.visaforchina.org or your nearest Chinese consulate/embassy as it is the athletes responsibility to ensure you are travelling on the correct visa.

 

Flights

The nearest airports are Haikou (HAK) and Sanya (SYX). Both are approximately 1.5-2 hour’s drive from the contest venue.

 *All surfers are responsible for organising and paying for their own flights.
