The island chain right at the bottom of Japan, these islands can deliver the goods for the surfer looking to find a bit of the indo experience in Japan.
Needing the right swell direction to work, it is a fickle place, but when it does get the right swell, indo class waves can be found. Mostly sharp coral reef breaks – when it’s on – definately not for novices. With a tropical climate, surfers enjoy warm water most of the year with great views of the F-16’s flying overhead from the U.S military base located on Okinawa. The main island of Naha is a good place to start, but a trip out to one of the many islands in the area is definately a worthwhile experience.
Just a few of the many great surf spots in Okinawa.
