Umegehama - This spot rocks on the right day. Some really cool locals as well and the drive down along the coast is beautiful. Look out for other spots on your way down particularly a point break just north of Umegehama just off a headland with a typhoon harbour tucked in its pocket. A class spot when it's on.
