- Nah way cant hold 8ft, look at the NZ surf guide booklet they say best surfed 2-4 ft. I surfed this place 4ft and was red lining it but was still super sick. Saying any west coast beach can hold 8ft is the most stupid comment ive ever heard of. how can u generalise that much for so many different types of breaks. putting that aside i'd have to say though that this wave barrels sick with the right conditions.
