10 years ago, I have bought the japanese surf spots atals. As it was in japanese, I just saw the photos. I remarked a photo with no mention of a beautiful surf spot. It was a dream, the type of dream wich make you travel. I didn't even knew where it was...except it was a reef in Shikoku.
We passed at this reef this afternoon at low tide: there was no wave but I recognized the landscape. It was Takegashima ! We went to do snorkelling and the tideraised up. When I came back to quit the area, I saw a small wave with a surfer. I jumped in the water via the etrapods and surf it.
The surf was far than exceptionnal but as it's a reef, the wave really surfable. And the water was so clear. And the landscape was beautiful. And I was so far from home. I just enjoyed so much this session. The other guy was a japanese on a single. A fierce local. But after 30mn, as I kept a low profile, we started to speak. He explained me that the spot is usually totally crowded.
The wave got better with the rising tide. I had to come back.
