Thread: Japan

  1. #1

    Japan

    Looks like I am going to be visiting family in Japan for about 2 weeks sometime in 2011. (We haven't decided what time of year yet) If possible I would like to get in the water while I am over there. Has anyone on here been surfing over there? Or, does anyone know where I could get some info on surfing in Japan? I searched this forum and the global surf talk forum and nothing came up. Thnx.

    if that's not enough, there's this thing on the world wide intraweb called "The Google." I hear it works pretty well when trying to ascertain non-proprietary information...

    Thanks D-bag. It's called going to a forum on surfing where i can get some people to share personal experience. I already checked global surfer and wanted more info.

    Well clearly you have not tried this new fantastic tool i mentioned before, "The Google." Because if you had gone to "The Google" and typed in "Japan Surf" you would have found at the top of the page a website called "www.japansurf.com." (that funny little line of "code" starting with "www" is called a "URL.") Let us investigate further. Just next to the web address is a description of the website. "Everything you need to know about surfing in Japan." Ok, now that sounds useful. Now let's go even further. Try moving your mouse over the "hyperlink" and left clicking. What do you know, a nice pretty website. Now, you said you were looking for personal experiences. You figured that the best place to find these personal experiences on Japan surfing was a midatlantic United States Surfing message board. Unfortunately, you were mistaken. Because on this "Japansurf.com" there is a "Messageboard" all it's own, with people recounting their personal experiences of surfing in Japan. You might have to "Search" the "Archive" for exactly what you are looking for, but now that you have followed these neat little instructions, you probably know how to use the "Intraweb" so you should be able to figure it out.

    Always happy to help!!!

    There is a ton of surf in Japan. Very uncharted for the most part. A pro that rides for plus one that I surf with who lives in OB (Kalani Kalama) did a documentary on Fuel about his surf trip to Japan. He was surfing HUGE DOH points and reefs. Alone. He said it was erie to see so many waves with no one out. It breaks just like CA from what he said. He came back super stoked though. The episode airs like twice a month still on Fuel. Its just 30 minutes of him ripping and doing charity work with kids.
