Anytime is a good time to go, it also depends where in NZ you re planning on going. It's a pretty cheap place, $15 NZ dollars for a hostel 10 for a dinner. bring a 3/2 wetsuit for most places

i think the best time to go if you really want good waves is either spring or autum, eg march -april or sep-nov theres usually more swell during these times. water will be a bit cooler though. you'll want a good 4/3 for the south island, may get away with 3/2 for the north.
