Surf in Japan« on: November 01 2016 05:11:00 »
Hi, I am from Hawaii and moved to Japan in 2015. I live in Mishima, shizuoka prefecture. I heard that Shimoda, Tatado etc... in Izu is the closest/best surf spot for me. What is the surfers etiquette in Japan? Do I need to make friend with the locals before hitting the water? I know Hawaii or Tahiti are very territorial so I'm assuming same rule applies in Japan. Also, I think it's always better to go with someone who knows the spot, the courants, the tide etc. Geez! I need a local surf buddy... hit me up @stevenlejeune
