About Shida

Most of the spots are mediocre beach breaks. At the N end of the Chiba peninsula is Choshi, a large fishing town with plenty of S facing beach breaks that work on typhoon swells. This is one of the few spots that can be crowd free, especially towards Shida. There are only a few access points to this powerful beach break that on W winds, high tide and a clean, moderate swell, can produce perfect barrels. These waves however can’t be described as ‘clean’ as this area is let down by the brown coloured water and industrial waste that frequently pollutes the beach.
