If your in Auckland in June/July you'll need a very decent 3/2mm steamer or 4/3mm if your a pussy.

Usually at that time of the year the whole East Coast from East Cape to the tip of the North Island will get flat for atleast 4 weeks straight... Your best bet will be to spend time in Gisborne or Raglan/Taranaki at that time of year, or even spend time right up at kaitaia and wait for 'shipwreckbay' to start working...
