A story about a Storm that grew out of the ocean 1000 miles away, faked us all with a classic piece of misdirection, by heading East then bent back on herself to track NW and started to gather force and mutated into a Typhoon which was officially named 'MALAKAS'.Once Named HE/SHE turned up the heat sucked in a storm to the North of Japan, stole that storms energy and started packing winds over 140km/h directed right at us = YA HOOOOooooo!!

She changed direction again and started moving right at us - a perfect track for the top half of Honshu in Japan.

Swell started hitting the shore on Friday night, Peaked on Saturday morning and carried right through to Sunday, and if you'd had the time and the energy after 3 epic days of surf in Chiba you could've followed the waves north as Ibaraki and Fukushima all got good.

After a very flat hot Summer this is what we all needed.
