Oharai (Central Ibaraki Region) Surfing Info and Details

The A-frame waves at Oharai are especially famous, as they are formed when the left side of the bank collides with the front swell. This is a wave for intermediate to advanced surfers.

It is often difficult to break because of the deep topography, so it is better to go up from the low tide, but be careful when going south to the shrine because the reef is often hidden. When the tide is low and the tide is shallow, you need to pay attention to the rocks, so check the tide graph carefully when planning your entry into the ocean.
Also, the shore break is very strong here in Oarai, so be careful. If yachting as a beginner, don’t enter the water too easily. In case of northeasterly wind, the north bank can be used to reduce some of it. Be careful not to park your car in the aquarium parking lot.
