Fukushima has consistant waves throughout most of the year.
Don’t forget to bring your wetty though as the water temp in winter is very cold. Choose from a variety of reef and beach breaks. In my experience locals can tend to be a bit agro sometimes. Access from Tokyo is quiet easy. However as expected, since the tsunami in 2011 the surfing population has decreased greatly.
Just a few of the many great surf spots in Fukushima.
Also known as "Iwaki Pipe" for obvious reasons. Only breaks occasionally when the swell is right. Late take offs, deep board snapping barrels.Google Map
Power plant on the left side of the break. Works best off a south swell. Popular with longboarders.Google Map
