There are several carparks along the bay, best to go to the southern most carpark. This is the end where the best waves are found but the centre is not too bad either in the right conditions.
Great spot for all levels of surfing experience, the best waves are found at the Southern end of the bay aswell as in the centre in front of the surf club. Nothing wrong with the locals, a quick "gidday" would go a long way.
The beach is also a popular recreation beach, swimming, walking etc etc.

T-Bay mostly an on-shore (wind swell) - Lived in Welly for a few years - Titahi Bay mostly works on wind swell - does get ground swell but usually its on-shore madness & the quality varies from flat to sad to pretty good fun if you don't mind a howling wind in your face & big wild windy stormies...
