Fukuoka in Kyu Shu is a reasonably exposed beach and reef break. Winter is the best time of year for surfing here. Offshore winds blow from the southeast. Waves more likely to be from local windswells than distant groundswells and the ideal wave angle is from the north. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights as well as left and right hand reef breaks.. It very rarely gets crowded here. Take care to avoid the rocks.
