It was a bit of a drive (a day plus from Sasebo). There is a nice little camp site up the road where we stayed. I found this place by matching it from landmarks in Curren's surf videos. A small typhoon from the Philippines was making some nice looking rights. You can park off the side of the road like I did, or you can park at a little market just near and walk in.
It was completely empty on a Saturday with typhoon waves coming in. The locals told me that because of the typhoon, no one would be surfing around the area. The waves were not big at all (may 4' at the max). Clear water, but very overcast. Two fishermen were out and that was all. My issue and biggest fears next to getting grated on the washboard like reef were those pesky jelly fish. They come out in swarms in August-October. Do wear felt-bottom booties for the reef while walking. Very slick and the waves crash hard against you while trying to wade in.
Kinda lonely. A few surfers probably would've made it feel more at home. The waves made nice rights which would be great for some nose riding on my 9'.
