  • Amazing experience! even though I was a beginner, I could catch the waves because of the passionate instructor! Dane was so helpful and generous. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Japan!

  • This was my first time trying surfing. And I was able to got up on the board at 2nd wave!! Dane was a outgoing, kind and fair host who explains how to surf and basic tips of the ocean and suring. Plus He taught us more than surfing. He kept saying that " surfing is a lifestyle" and how surfing is linked with our lifestyle. It was one of my highlights of my trip. Highly recommended
