Hata Surf Dojo
Hata Surf Dojo is located at the northern end of a beautiful 4 km stretch of beach in Kuroshio-cho in the south-west of Kochi Prefecture, Shikoku. It’s an ideal place for learning how to surf with perfect size waves for beginners and a stunning natural backdrop of pine forests and mountains. We run lessons almost daily from May thru to November. During our lessons you’ll experience the natural thrill and challenge of surfing in a fun and safe environment, under the guidance of an Aussie surf coach with over 15 years experience in surf coaching. Hata Surf Dojo can arrange surf and stay packages with a variety of accommodation options including camping, minshuku’s and hotels. We also rent soft, safe and fun coaching boards if you want to keep your surfing stoke going. So why wait! Come find your Mojo at Hata Surf Dojo!

(Bus times may vary) When driving from Takamatsu, Matsuyama or Honshu, travel on the expressway past Kochi City and take the last exit (Susaki Higashi interchange). Follow route 56 (approx 1.5 hours) until you reach Ukibuchi. Look for a large carpark with a large whale on a sign and a roadside souvenir shop/restaurant called "Ogata Bios".
