|Find the best surf spots||
The 3 areas, Shonan (Shounan, or Sagami Bay), north Chiba and south Chiba receive all the surfers from Tokyo. Due to its popularity, hipness and ease of access from Tokyo, Shonan is heavily crowded almost throughout the year, while swells are usually much smaller than in north and south Chiba. Both north and south Chiba spots can pick swell until 6 to 8 ft, while north can sometimes be as crowded as Shonan and south always remains less crowded due to its distance from Tokyo. Typhoon season (from mid-August to early mid-October) usually receives the biggest swells in these 3 areas.

Need surf buddy around tokyo fro early november - Hi,
my name is Tom, and I'm a surfer from Europe (Portugal). I will be in Tokyo on a business trip in early November (nov 2-nov 7). I would LOVE to surf around Tokyo and discover the spots. I will bring a wetsuit, but I need to pick up a board, and find somebody to go with.
I have been surfing for 17 years, and traveled a lot. If you feel like hanging out with a guy from far away (and helping a surfing brother out), please contact me. I have some good surf stories to tell.
You can reach me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope to hear from you soon, thanks!
