- Rips / undertow
On big days, the paddle out can be hard - but as this thins out the crowds its not such a bad thing!Deep and heavy water,undertow strong!
Can get a bit competitive - due to the proximity to Napier, anyone without a car surfs here....
Not a bad break, but there are better breaks in the area - explore. Great view of the famous Art Deco town of Napier.

undertow - Marine Parade is not what i would call a wave for beginers,it's deep water,good luck trying to find the surface on a big day! Size is deceiving when your standing on the beach.This beach drowns 1-2 tourists a year.
