As per other New Zealand East Coast waves, it doesn't break too often but when it's on it's usually barreling over golden sand!

get your hand of it - Get your hand off it "Inzy", you are smokin too much P.Wise up, unless you are a full blooded Moriori mate,you are an immigrant to nz too. thats right Inzy, all maori are just as much immigrants to nz as any pale pasty pommie. Maori didn't originate here, they SAILED here just like everybody else: they arrived before some and AFTER others. Cut the racist crap "Holmes" -are you some seppo from LA?? you sound like one. Just go surfing

stop whinging - Sounds like you guys have forgotten the reason why we surf, yeah its windy, yeah it could be bigger, yeah it barrels better at the island but its better than nothing. If you spent as much time surfing as you did shiting on you local beaches & each other you wouldnt have time to complain, so stop bitching and get amongst it.
