One of the best rivermouth in Japan. Big wave (more than 10 ft). Long ride. You can catch 3 tubes sections in the same wave ! Better with a lot of rain. Be careful of rips. This is not only a regional classic, but a national, world classic - when it is on. Having lived here for a long, long time, there have been seasons with shit banks and few typhoons, and as a result, average waves. But, with a bank and with a good typhoon season, this place will rock whatever your level. The best thing is that many of the locals won't head out when it is cranking, preferring to sit on the wall, under the bridge and watch the foreigner contingent rip it apart. Nevertheless, the locals deserve respect as they wait a long time for this place to turn it on and so do not appreciate fly-ins hogging the take off zone. Be cool and friendly, go hard when its on and you will have the time of your life. But remember, this place is 'heaven and hell' - when its on its on, when its not it's definitely not.

Rude Locals - Dont expect much of a welcome when going to this spot. The locals are possibly the rudest Japanese in Japan. It was about head high at the most and the locals were having a fit...the only English they knew was `Locals only`!!! Its a good wave but shame about the locals!
