Atmosphere

Good atmosphere, sometimes the locals get greedy but after a couple of beers after surfing they are an ok bunch of people. 2 good surf shops within walking distance of the beach Nan seas and LA surf, They have everything you might need for a price, But dont be shy to try and talk them down on the price, I know I never am!
Popular spot for both longboards and short, and its the training ground of Japans number 3 women shortboard surfer champs....

General

On a normal day its a a good spot for beginers, and if there is a typhoon it will test the most seasoned pros!

There is another good surf spot south of Sunset Beach called Takasu. I surfed it Monday 10.9.07. On Friday it was small, on Monday it was overhead. The swell can pick up quickly. Water temperature was warm. Great waves. A real surprise.

Very beautiful emerald green water, clear and clean. Great views from the ocean of the river flowing into the ocean, with yellow-orange beach sand, mountains, hills and pine trees.

Watch the trash on the beach, plenty of broken glass bottles, etc.

ALL JAPAN BEACHES ARE FILTHY DIRTY WITH GARBAGE. YOU'D THINK YOU WERE IN SOME THIRD WORLD COUNTRY INSTEAD OF THE SECOND WEALTHIEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD.
