Wakayama on a good day can provide some of the best surfing in Japan.
Overshadowed by the Chiba and Shikoku areas, Wakayama has always catered for the Osaka crews keen on finding a secluded wave. Reef breaks dominate this peninsular and a lot of the time you can find a good uncrowded wave. Needs a decent swell to produce anything worth puttin’ on a wettie, but you can usually find some surf around in the summer time.
