LOCAL BREAK

Whale Bay is a left hand point break that breaks up to 200m in length, from about 2-8 ft+. Made up of 2 sections, an inside hollow section up to about 4 ft that breaks very close to the rocks, and an outside, slower section from 4 ft up. The shore line is rocky and access is limited and tricky at times.

Manu Bay boasts a left hand point break which works from 2-10ft+. Suitable for intermediate to advanced surfers, it has alternate hollow and wall sections, occasional barrels, and is usually a bit smaller than Indicators.

Raglan is world-famous for its long left-hand break that caters to beginners up to advanced surfers. Ngaranui Beach, Raglan’s main swimming beach, is a long flat sandy bottomed beach that offers nice surfing options for beginners to advanced surfers. All year long, the beach provides the perfect environment for learners.

Indicators is a left hand point break that breaks for up to 600m, from 2-10ft+. It is a long-walled, fast wave with occasional barrels, particularly on the low tide. It picks up a lot of swell and is very consistent. It’s access is limited and tricky at times. Best suited for advanced surfers.
