Classic Aotearoa - I surfed this spot with two buddies on a perfect 3-5 ft. day-barrels on the inside. This place has tons of potential when the east coast gets decent swell. It was us and 2 others and I think it was a weekend.

NO - It's not a reef break. There ARE reefs there, but there is also beach/reef mix. It's not just reef under the surface. Looking south toward Tairua are the reefs, out in front is the reef/beach mix.
