Atmosphere

locals are friendly here; its a good spot to make friends and a very fun wave. Winter swells are sweet and there is good scenery. The paddle is long, but not too long. The spot is no secret so expect a nice crowd on a good weekend day there. It is a well known spot to anyone on okinawa who surfs, so ask an American how to find the spot.

dingo - mandingo, what up! there aint no waves in oki. see ya in diego

More on Ikei - To get to Ikei island, you have to go over that red bridge. Before you rush to go surf, have fun and jump off the bridge. If you're heading towards ikei, jump off the right side, too many rocks on the left. And when you jump, there's a crazy current sometimes pulling you back, so wathcout. have fun. Chris Malloy, or one of the malloys was photographed jumping from the TOP of the Red part in a transworld a few years back. Cheers -tj
