The idea for “Ride the Waves on March 11” came about when Mihara stopped by engawanoie and was invited by the surfers to ride the waves and talk with them over a delicious meal. When I realized that the day I felt so special was an ordinary day in this area, I intuitively decided to make it a format that anyone could participate in on March 11. We would like to gather every year, making small changes to make it a fresh day for the locals as well.
