WHAT TO EXPECT
Tanegashima Island is a southwest island of Japan with big waves and great surf. It's located between Honshu, the main island, and Okinawa. It's been named one of Japan's best surf islands and hosts international competitions for the pros.
On this tour, you can choose to do a half-day surf school (about 2 hours) or a half-day surf guide (about 4 hours), with the option to stay overnight.
The half-day surf school includes a professional surf staff who will teach you all you how to stand up and experience the waves like a pro. This is a great option for beginners.
If you're on the road to becoming the next Kelly Slater and love surfing, the half-day surf guide may be the right option for you. A pro surfer will show you the best locations to catch a wave, plus add in a little technical advice (kind of like a coach) to help you get the most out of the experience.
This tour also offers options to upgrade to a full day of surfing with a BBQ dinner to replenish your appetite. We know you'll love Tanegashima Island. It sits right on the beach and offers the perfect paradise for surfers and ocean lovers.
