Cheap surf board rental in Chiba

Just looking for an idea where I can rent a surf board in Chiba (preferably in Onjuku Beach or Ichinomiya Beach) at a cheap price. Thank you!

    @Tomuu is the surfing expert around here - can you weigh in on this one?

    I'd have to look into this to be aware of specific places. What I will say though, is that now the beaches are "open" and the universities soon to break up for the hols, there should be no problem finding places to rent boards, especially in Onjuku and Ichinomiya. As an example though http://flyingsumo.jp/surf-lessons/ has board rental for 4,000 yen a day which seems reasonable to me (and they have English-language info on the site). If you're a beginner or fairly new to surfing, I would choose Onjuku over Ichinomiya. A lot of Japan's pros and experts frequent the Ichinomiya area so it can get quite competitive in the waters around there. Onjuku is much more user friendly (although less reliable for waves).

    @Tomuu Thank you! I guess I'd pick Onjuku Beach then. :)

Your favorite summer getaway spots?

Any favorite places you all have to get away to during the stinking hot summer months? I would love a long weekend away somewhere (ideally cooler!) We did Hakodate/Aomori one summer and really enjoyed it. Would love to hear your suggestions.

Hot water into cold water

I heard or read somewhere that pouring hot water into cold water was not a good thing to do. (I like my water luke warm sometimes) Something to do with religion or dead association with dead people (and Japan does not like that) Have you heard of this? Any sources I could see so I don’t mess up in a critical moment?

Annoying morning futon slapping noise. What time is OK?

There's a middle-aged guy, living in one of the apartments in the building across the street from me, who hangs out his futon between 7 - 8 am and then bangs the sh@*t out of them with one of those stupid plastic slapping devices. Honestly, I want to take it from him and slap him with it instead. Of course, I'll end up doing nothing of the sort, but I find this futon-slapping at that time so annoying and noisy and am astonished that he continues to do it despite his noise echoing down the whole street and him being the only person on the street to do so (at least at that sort of time). If he was in my building I might stick a note through his door or something, but I'm not sure about the protocol of doing that when the culprit is in a different building. I'm also wondering if the 7 - 8 am slot for futon-slapping is a perfectly acceptable one and actually it's me that needs the attitude adjustment. Thoughts?
