Re: General snow stuff

Yeah Myoko is small, you can bus it to other places like Suginohara.

The village is really small, not so much gaijin but always increasing.

Re: General snow stuff

I know of a nice ryokan
I've never ryokaned, reckon I might this time as a wind down before the trip back home.

Flights are still stupid though, unless I go through Manilla which I swore I would never do again after last time.

Re: General snow stuff

In Tokyo ?

We are planning to go to Iwate and then Yuzawa, maybe Myoko Kogen as well if time permits.

I was in Japan when Covid kicked off and the Chinese shut down their stock market, hopefully that won't happen again :!:

Re: Fish

ok, I've never ridden one so really it's just armchair observation and applying what little I know about board design and came to the conclusion that the tail being so broad would suit more drawn out turns, not something I would imagine me doing on a small beachie. Also they start at 5'10" which is ...

Re: Fish

looks interesting, never ridden a bonzer, doesn't look like a particularly manoeuvrable shape for small waves to me

Re: Fish

lol "ok to ride", if I worried about what people might think of my boards I'd never go to the beach.
