 West Coast

Japan

This region is not as good as the pacific coast but it offers good conditions during a typhoon.
Autumn is really the time of year to surf this area. During typhoon season, especially in august, the day after a typhoon is as good as it will get until about october. During the middle of august, obon, large amounts of jellyfish will come into the area for about a week or so and then slowly dissappear.

My first artificial reef - Woke up at 5 am. I went to Ataka without any hope. But a post typhoon swell was here, no wind. Ataka didn't work but someone else should work. I decide to go to Kanazawa Harbour. I took the higway and, at the Service Area of Tokomitsu, I remenb

Good Test - I was back in Komatsu (Japan sea) after the Shikoku travel. A classic meteo situation occured: a WSW wind flow in the Japan sea passed off Komatsu but straight into Noto Hanto. No swell in Komatsu but will there be in Noto Hanto ? We went by c

short and good - Just a look at Ataka and I decided to jump into the water. Waves were smaller than in the morning but the swell was longer and the waves were better. I took a lot of them and it was fun ! a good short session. VIDEO   not

Here again, I went to Japan. We have prepared a trip in the best part of Japan for surfing: Shikoku. This area has the best rivermouth spots of Japan. It needs a typhoon swell to work.

I went to Japan with all my family to see my wife's family. It was not really a surf trip. But I brought an old surfboard with me (6'2'' rusty) in case of waves. I will let this board in Japan. We are on the west coast of Japan whic

I went to Biscarosse for my Holidays. I didn't expected much surf as the weather forecast seemed bad. But it has been pretty good except 3 days. I get some excellent sessions on excellent sandbanks.

Oki Surfing re: - I was in oki for 6 months of a deployment with full use of a vehicle everyday. I would NEVER recommend surfing oki or even bringing a board, the waves are few and far between plus battling with the locals who have no idea what snaking and dropping in constitutes. All the locals are like little groms on longboards paddling for EVERY set wave and refuse to get off unless you pull them onto the beach and beat them within an inch of their life which happened a few times. Typhoon season is the only time these tools see swell.

Bullshits!!! - Where do you get your informations????Wintertime is just basicaly snow and freezing temps!Water temp must be around ten degs. Not much.The sand is snow covered and the wind freezing as hell.waves are really good, but as a local I'm really surprised that you don't mention the right spots.....As Toriihama and Hamazume...just to name a few

Shizuoka/hamamatsu water quality - Yeah, theres waves to be had around Hamamatsu, but watch out for the bad, bad, awful water quality. the water is alive with trash and dead shit, making a session in this toxic slick sick soup pretty much a waste of time. Head to Omaezaki for a better chance of clean waves - locals can be wankers, but the Brazillian guys are pretty cool.Enjoy!!
