 Additional Information

To surf this spot well you need to respect the beach, respect the locals and if you do those 2 things you will catch epic waves. And remember that you can stay the night at the Farm on the Beach, you can camp/campervan pretty much anywhere on the beach, or you can stay in one of the old farmers huts,ranging from basic to pretty nice. Pahi Bay and Umuheke Bay (the next couple of bays to the North) are also worth a look if there is a bit of a crowd (which is rarely)or Taupiri Bay to the South also, but all these little Bays and Coves are only accesible by foot, so be adventurous trust me you will be rewarded, a little birdie told me there's some epic fishing to be had as well.

Atmosphere

Elliots is a camp ground during the summer so you can be surfing with heaps of city folk, but usally everyone is pretty laid back just cruising.

General

Just a real piece of paradise just beware that it is suituated not far from the Whangamumu whaling station so in the past it used to attract some very big nasties. When the sun is not out it can be a little scarey.But otherwise pretty awesome, you surf with cows lazing around on the beach and the only time other people will be out is after work when all the locals come out or if people are staying at the farm.
