Where To Go
A longboarder’s tropical paradise, Miyazaki holds a wave around every corner. The long stretch of coastline becomes more mountainous and tropical the further south you travel. Local break Kaeda was a favourite of Ambrose’s and fun for all surf craft enthusiasts. We found ourselves at a fun little peeler beyond the pine trees of Odotsu, and frequented the friendly break out the front of where we were staying at Aoshima. Under the fairy floss clouds and a sun setting between parting mountains, we scored an elusive wave in the small bay below Cape Toi. Lines of swell visible from far out to sea, and though only breaking for a punchy and short trip, the magical evening is one we won’t forget.
