Shikoku is possibly the best place in Japan for surfing.
Japan's fourth largest island has an exposed SE facing coastline. Kochi prefecture is the main surf area, and if filled with points, rivermouths, and beach breaks catering for all types of surfers. By far the main attraction for surfers in Shikoku are the grinding rivermouths that can pump out world class waves during typhoon season. In particular, Kaifu rivermouth is one spot you must experience during a typhoon swell at least once in your life.
