Japan surf shop query« on: July 07 2006 00:07:00 »
There are Japanese surfshops at just about every destination with waves and many without waves all over the country. About a year ago quite a few internet shops popped up selling cheaper surf gear aswell, but the cartells have put the breaks on those guys and the "cheap deals now" come with pretyy heavey freight deals.
Theres an Aussie guy who has been here for years who does foriegners deals on boards you will get him at AustSurfShop.com they have longboards, retro and shortboards. he does only customs and as long as your not French or a Banker his prices are very reasonable door to door. Check his price list he has an english and Japanese site.
This typhoon has sat down there for 3 days and today would be the beginning of some serious overhead smoking barrels in Northern Kyushu,Shikoku and Mie Ken Get on to it!
