Junkyards Surf Guide

Junkyards in Okinawa is an exposed reef break that has quite reliable surf. Autumn and winter are the favoured times of year for waves. Offshore winds blow from the east northeast. Waves more likely to be from local windswells than distant groundswells and the best wave direction is from the southwest. A choice of left and right reefs. When it's working here, it can get crowded. Hazards include rips, coral and sharks.
