Another almost flat morning at Yoshida. Actually, on the 21st I also went to Yoshida, Shizunami, Kashima and Katahama – all no good. So I was looking forward to getting in the water. I haven’t really been able to use my new suit much yet. 🙁 How would Shizunami be?
Here’s what it looked like at Yoshida… Better than last time, but not that great so we moved down to Shizunami. A little bit better. Played here for about an hour and half until the wind really picked up. Hard to believe that it is the middle of November!
Today was Wednesday – my official surf day. I was hoping to have a good outing today. First stop – Yoshida at around 6 am. Not too bad. I caught a fair number of waves. At around 9 am, some more surfers arrived and that Shizunami was even better…
I wasn’t planning on going surfing today – I was kinda tired after the drive back from Ibaraki. I planned on sleeping in – unfortunately, the alarm clock wasn’t turned off. Once I’m awake, it’s difficult to go back to sleep. Why not go to the beach?
A familiar sight at Yoshida – rainy, small waves and a couple of fishermen. Next stop – Shizunami.
It was raining when I woke up this morning. That isn’t enough to stop me from going to the beach, but it certainly makes the roads crowded. The traffic was unbelievable today. It usually takes about 45 minutes to an hour to drive from my home to the beach, but today it took an hour […]
As the title suggests, I decided to do something different today. I would go surfing AFTER work. What a crazy idea – would it work?? A rare appearance by Mr. Fuji – minus the layer of snow. I guess that there will be snow there in the next month or so. This is my first […]
It was raining quite heavily this morning but the wave forecast looked promising. Recently we have been visiting several points looking for suitable waves. Would today be the same? As always, the first stop was Yoshida but it had only tiny waves – almost flat. There were only 3 or 4 fisherman there. Surprisingly, they […]
I’m not a longboarder and I’m not really interested in watching surf contests, but I just happened to be here at the right? wrong? time. While looking for waves, we stopped at Shizunami. The parking lots were really full – it’s not summer and the waves weren’t big at all so that could only mean […]
I knew the waves probably wouldn’t be too good today but it was going to be warm and sunny. So I didn’t want to miss a nice autumn day of surfing (winter will soon be here I’m sure). I was determined to find some place with some waves!
