Surf in Hokaido

« on: June 22 2013 16:06:00 »

Just wondering where the best places to surf are in hokaido.  Also what swell / wind directions do they work best on.  I will be travelling around looking for waves from late June till early July

As long as I can see at this website (, it looks like there are only two major surf spots in Hokkaido: Hamaatsuma near Tomakomai, and Itankihama near Muroran. I heard from a friend that there's another spot near Hakodate  where you can surf when a typhoon comes, but expect that that spot rarely gets surfable swells and waves, when any typhoon is not there.
