I keep getting a "not really coincidence" vibe about naming a tropical storm/typhoon that attacks the Japanese coasts "Dolphin"

Miniscule waves, more like pretend surfing than the real thing

Does size matter?

Two closest people in the picture using shortboards to surf a half foot wave... At least the guys on the end

using longboards, which is better suited for smaller waves. Shortboards better for carving and such... On much higher waves. But you gotta make do with what you got I guess.

I surfed a few years in Japan until recently however it gets tiring. On many days the water is extremely crowded and it is stressful trying to avoid hitting anyone. In Florida you can almost have the beach to yourself.

Agreed, these "waves" are for little babies and not for real surfers like back home with proper man waves. Japan is so embarrassing!

Look at the copy/paste of humans in that pic.

Exactly! They look like zombie robots copied and pasted forever. They all look the same.

Pfft. That's not crowded. Katagai on any weekend is crowded. You wouldn't believe the crowds! Surfing, the sport of kings... pfft. Not here.

Jessie Lee - Miniscule waves, more like pretend surfing than the real thing

I surfed in Chiba and Ibaraki for many years coz I grew up on the beach in Australia and have surfed since I was about 10. However, for most Japanese it's only the image. Most of them spend more time s stretching and posing on the beach than the do surfing.
