There were some fun waves last week though, I think more from typhoon 14 thats been hanging around Taiwan.......

Thanks you guys, typhoon's past and not as heavy as expected, We're still in the red zone though but hopefully have some surf tomorrow.

Got some rain out of it though from what the news showed....Closed the bases down too. Looked like Family Marts were open though. Always cracks me up that everything but 7-11 is closed.
Glad that you're safe and the surf should be up, but onshore for most of the east coast right?

We're getting more rain since it passed. Everything was closed, no 7-11 here 

But did get some waves today......only one other guy out.

If there was I don't think it's there anymore. I know there all basically the same, but I miss 7-11.

Hard for me to say since I've only been here in Okinawa a little over a year now and I'm still learning the spots and conditions. Can probably get good surf most of the year if you know where to go, there's lots of nooks and cranny's. Most places here you can only surf about 3 hours before, during, and after high tide. It seems the worst (flat) months are June and July. There also seems to be alot of spots that go unridden as well, perhaps because of difficult access or long ass paddle.

Looks like another bad one heading your way.  You guys stay safe.

http://worldnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/09/14/13862369-super-typhoon-with-170-mph-winds-heading-for-okinawa-and-south-korea?lite&ocid=msnhp


A storm packing 170 mph winds was bearing down on the southern end of Japan's Okinawa Island, where locals and U.S. military personnel stationed at several bases were quickly stocking up and battening down.

Sanba, dubbed a "super typhoon" by meteorologists, is the equivalent of a Category 5 hurricane. Named storms west of the international dateline in the Northwest Pacific Ocean are called typhoons, not hurricanes.

After swiping southern Okinawa this weekend, Sanba is projected to make landfall in South Korea with winds still above 100 mph.

"The center will pass close to Okinawa this weekend and then Sanba, in a less-intense but still potent state, is expected to reach South Korea Sunday night or Monday," weather.com reported.

On Okinawa, the Stars and Stripes news website for U.S. military personnel was reporting that military commissaries were packed with people buying food and emergency supplies.

"We’re already seeing/feeling Super Typhoon Sanba’s most outer bands," the report stated. "If it’s sitting outside the garage, put it inside. If the garage door is still open, shut it. If the trampoline is still up, take it down."

Up to a foot of rain was forecast for the area.
