Surfed with Takako this morning and we both rode the Akule model. The waves were a little choppy but still get some sets. Maybe 3 feet on the sets if you wait a while. This is one thing I miss about Japan. The Grinds! Check it out. THe table has everything from sushi to curry to tonkatsu! THis is why I come back 8 pounds heavier! Hahaha.
