Know lots of places. You need to get to the other side of this peninsula though. A couple places on this side but their swell window is very small. Monday and Tuesday were pretty good. Got my eyes out for the possibilities for next week as well.

Take train from Yokosuka to Kamakura station, and transfer to local train and head to Kugenuma Beach area (also called Shonan).  Mostly wind swell that doesn't last long, but gets pretty good after low pressure systems or Typhoon passes through.  Check Kamakura reaf breaks on big day.

Great info, Yusuke.  Thanks.  Incidentally, how long is the commute to Shonan from Yokosuka?
