there are spots left right & centre around the whangarei area
( east coast ) try mangawai hds & ocean beach if the swells on , if it is flat drive over to the west coast ( 40 min drive )
to bailys beach you will always find a wave there , it can get real big. if it is to big on the west coast , head up to Kaitia this is where the fabled lefthander shipwrecks is , this place can get real good & rivals Raglan when on , but needs a big SW swell to break , Have a good Holiday!!!!!!!

Good breaks near auckland- Forrestry, Te arai Point- past warkworth and wellsford- Situated on the east coast- check the report before ya go- The east coast can have long flat spells- Blake

Thinking of moving to Auckland from far are the surf spots from the city? year round, or just winter swell?
