Hokkaido Island

Hokkaido is the most undeveloped surf island in Japan. It is said that there are countless high quality waves that no one has seen yet.

From autumn to winter, the main spot is on the Sea of Japan side in the direction of Otaru, which is close to Sapporo.
From spring to autumn, check out the surf spots on the Pacific side of Hakodate, Muroran, and Tomakomai. Especially for those who are new to surf trips in Hokkaido, we recommend summer to autumn when the water temperature is relatively high.
High-quality waves are constantly breaking in the Tokachi area such as Meguro and Hiroo.
Innumerable waves are breaking from Kushiro to Nemuro, but there are few signs of surfers and it is possible to surf while avoiding congestion.
