Too cold for the average weekend warrior to surf up here.
But if you are a keen madman there are some waves to be found, especially in Summer, when the locals come out to defrost. There’s not really a large surfing population up there as most of the action is on the mountains. There are a few hardcore locals who brave the cold temperatures and are pretty laid back towards visitors to the area. Watch out for the bergs!
Just a few of the many great surf spots in Hokkaido.
