 Access

You can drive up from Ahipara about 20-30 minutes, and take a turnoff from the main road to Henderson beach car park. From this carpark, you come upon a beautiful broad vista of the beach, with the better A-frame peaks usually a few hundred metres south from the car park.

 Additional Information

This is an above average, A frame, hollow beachbreak from about 2-6+ feet, breaking all along the beach, well worth the drive up from Ahipara. The best peaks are usually a few hundred metres south of the main carpark.

When Shipwrecks and the west coast is blowing onshore or too small, the beauty of this part of NZ is that the east coast picks up swell from the other direction, is only a short drive away, and is also dead offshore when the west coast is blown out. Henderson Beach is an excellent option on the east side if the wind is out of the NW-SW (often).

Atmosphere

A really good peaky beachbreak, I surfed it twice at 2-4 feet, swell from the east, an offshore SW wind, and got some clean green barrels (both lefts and rights), with just a few other travelling Irish surfers.

General

Serene, beautiful beach, with nice A-frame peaks, probably best at 3-5 feet, but might handle a bit more as well. Try it when Shippies is too small or blown out.
