Discription of surf spot: Bowls, Japan

This spot is my personal favorite at the sunabe seawall, it offers good rights and on really good days it gives way to good lefts as well, The bottom is very sharp so booties might be a good idea. There is usually a very big crowd as the seawall has breaks all along it during the winter months. There are some pretty agressive locals as well but they really dont give ya much crap. Great Wave on the right day.
