We're located about an hour from Central Tokyo by train,

a nice 15-20 minute walk from the Chigasaki station,

and the beach is right in front of us.




Just bring your bathing towel, swim wear, beach sandals, sun screen, shampoo and something to drink and you're good to go.


THE SURF LESSON is 3 hours long ,

(usually from 0930~1230 depending on the tide of that day)

Priced at 7,000 Japanese Yen per person,

A maximum of 3 or 4 persons,

Board and Wet Suit included,

A nice shower after the lesson, and

An overall evaluation for your next step in Surfing.

Your expert instructors will make sure you'll enjoy and get an awesome workout; surfing is fun, but it can get pretty intense depending on how hard you try.



Don’t worry. You will get wet in the water anyways,

so Lessons will be held on rainy days as well.


We will notify you if the weather persists.
Eat and Sleep Well the Night Before! 
Surfing is a fun sport, but it is also a strenuous sport.
Don’t party hard the night before. 
Don’t skip breakfast on your lesson day.

Such acts will jeopardize the safety of you and the others. 
You may be asked to forfeit your lesson if we notice any inappropriate behavior and actions.


Surf lessons are held year round, every day during the summer season (June-August) except days that the weather and surf conditions persist. 

During the other months (September to May) Tuesdays are our days off..

If you want to surf the best season, January to April, we suggest you bring your own steamer full suit for maximum comfort. 

If you don't have one, let us know and we'll hook you up ASAP.



Please come to SSH at 9:30 am. We will finish by 12:30 pm

so that you can enjoy your lunch at the restaurants nearby.

We will notify you if there may be a slight change to the time we start

due to the weather and shifting tide of that day.


Have your swim wear on (especially for ladies) when you come over

so that changing into your wet suit would be easier and quicker.


*Dont forget to bring Gatorade or the like for hydration during the summer season!

The sun is brutal, and you can easily get heatstroke!

We will have a cooler box ready to put your drinks in.

Surfing is a fun sport that could be done by anyone when the ocean is calm.
Unlike Skiing or snowboarding however, surfing is done in an uncontrolled environment, which categorizes it as a dangerous sport. 
The ocean that you will practice in is constantly moving, and for a novice surfer, the odds may be against you at certain times. 
The ocean is not your friend; it will not understand you, nor would it ever time out for you at critical moments.
You have to understand and respect the ocean for your own safety. We are here to support and assist you, but You will be responsible for yourself and whatever you do and take to the beach. 
We will be there to assist you for your surfing and safety so we expect you to follow our instructions carefully and seriously. 
If you feel safe by insuring yourself, we suggest you do so. 


If you are driving over, please keep in mind that there are traffic congestions to alter your arrival. We will start on time and we expect you to be here on time. Use the public transportation and enjoy your beer after surfing and return home safely. We look forward to seeing you here at Southern Beach Surf House for your ultimate experience with our Mother Ocean!
Thank you,
The SSH staff
