Stormrider Description
Stormrider Logo
While not generally thought to be among Japan's top surfing destinations, it is worth remembering that the Miyazaki SE-facing shoreline is ideally located to catch the typhoon swells. This coast is also extensive enough to escape the hordes from Honshu and while the best waves do get crowded at times, there are plenty of less accessible spots with good potential. Before visiting the Miyazaki Prefecture, bear in mind that winter produces decent surf in the Sea of Japan. Also, Tanega shima island has optimum swell exposure and can be accessed from Kagoshima for less than $100. The 397km (250mi) long Nichinan Coast has impressive sea-stacks up to 70m (210ft) high, including the renowned Umagase at the tip of Cape Hyuga.
