Consistant, powerful beach breaks and thundering reefs make this area a mecca among surfers in Japan. Chiba also is the home of a number of contest sites including world surfing events held every year.
Consistant is the word when describing Chiba and you can almost always be guaranteed a decent wave as well as a decent crowd here. Best season is August thru October when the typhoons come through. Gets pretty crowded though with the weekend crew from Tokyo and surrounding areas. Depending on which part of Tokyo you start from, a 1 – 2 hour drive on the freeways will get you there. Just head south from Tokyo and make sure to stop off at Disneyland on the way!
