 Shikoku

Japan

Shikoku has cool, continental winters and hot summers. Spring and summer are wet. The good surf season is from June to November during the typhoon season. The SouthEast coastline (Kochi and Tokushima provinces) picks the main swells. Typhoons swell can be too big for you. There are an average of 20 swells per season. Swells are unpredictable, and last from a few hours to several days.

Winter: northern wind.
Summer: SE wind and heavy rain.

The Japanese Pipeline - Kaifu ! It's maybe the mos tfamous japanese spot. It's the rivermouth standard. On a big swell, it's a long hollow right. On a medium or small size, it's a slab on a sand/gravel bar. You have a 1.5m to 2m peak on a no more than 1m d

no Western Kochi beaches??? - Some of the best surf beaches in Kochi (in Japan even) are located in western Kochi, but nothing west of Kochi city is included. A lot of Japanese make the trip down to Ohki beach, near Ashizuri cape (the southern tip of Shikoku) the beach has good camping, friendly locals, a nice onsen and very decent waves.
