Cheap surf board rental in Chiba
Just looking for an idea where I can rent a surf board in Chiba (preferably in Onjuku Beach or Ichinomiya Beach) at a cheap price. Thank you!
@Tomuu is the surfing expert around here - can you weigh in on this one?0
I'd have to look into this to be aware of specific places. What I will say though, is that now the beaches are "open" and the universities soon to break up for the hols, there should be no problem finding places to rent boards, especially in Onjuku and Ichinomiya. As an example though http://flyingsumo.jp/surf-lessons/ has board rental for 4,000 yen a day which seems reasonable to me (and they have English-language info on the site). If you're a beginner or fairly new to surfing, I would choose Onjuku over Ichinomiya. A lot of Japan's pros and experts frequent the Ichinomiya area so it can get quite competitive in the waters around there. Onjuku is much more user friendly (although less reliable for waves).1
@Tomuu Thank you! I guess I'd pick Onjuku Beach then. :)0
