NZ in dec

gday, im headin over to NZ in dec and going to surf my way up the north island. i know its not the best time to go but its the only time i can. Would the west coast be best?? what is the water temp about. I am taking my long arm spring, but should i pack my steamer? Where are the better waves at that time?? cheers, see ya soon!!



RE: NZ in dec

West is probly your safest bet for a wave. East coast won't be upto much unless a cyclone rolls by which is quite unlikly. I take it if your guna surf your way up the NI you will be arriving in wellington? Well defintly check out the wairarapa, probly has some of the NZ's best waves. From there go to taranaki pretty much bound to find a good wave there as it has well over 100 spots to choose from. These places down here will still be relativly cold and with NZ waters you never know how cold it will be so its best to pack both wetsuits. Up from taranaki you have raglan which im sure youve herd about. Up from there check out aucklands west coast which is usualy quite good at this time of year. The only other place i can reccomend is shipwrecks bay which is 5hours up north from auckland.

hope that info is helpful :)
