Add a New Surf SpotRegional Overview
A diverse and inlet-riven coastline which reaching into both the Sea of Japan and the Pacific Ocean. Japan is split into four main islands and countless smaller ones, as such the wind and swell options are abundant. They would be more profuse were it not for the amount of coastal development, which has destroyed many breaks. Beach breaks and points are the staple diet of surfers here but the most famous are the river-mouths which can offer classic conditions. The highlight of the year is typhoon season (August to October) when huge swells can produce fantastic waves at these locations. Short-lived but often good quality lows track up and down from the Pacific for the rest of the year. Water temperatures varies from 17 to 21°C or 63 to 70°F.

News Image Surf the Amazon
Imagine surfing the world’s longest wave, up the world’s greatest river, miles from civilisation and deep within the most impressive rainforest on earth. Adventure tour operator Ativa Adventures wants to make that image reality by offering trips for advanced surfers to ride the mighty Pororoca tidal bore on the Amazon River in Brazil. This is an extreme adventure, with real dangers, and miles away from civilisation. Crocodiles, snakes, piranhas, and a wall of white water tearing up everything in its path... But if we get it right, and we have everything in place to ensure that we do, you will experience the most beautiful sight a surfer will EVER get to see. Amazing lefts and rights, barrels that last for minutes, all while surrounded by the stunning, ecologically diverse and completely fascinating Amazon rainforest. Here is an extract from a journal kept by one of our first travellers to the Pororoca:
