I'm Coming Over late August & early September and was hoping i could find out what the surfing/Bodyboarding conditions are generally like for that time of year, and what areas would be best

August September usually sees large swells come out of the north and hit our West Coast beaches. It tends to be a bit unsurfable though as the wind will be howling onshore. Raglan is a good bet through these winter months as a south westerly provides good surfing conditions. The east coast tends to have long flat spells in the top of the north Island but the Gisborne area will get some good surf produced from deep southern ocean low pressure systems and westerly offshore winds. Generally our summer months are the best for surf and the water is a lot warmer. Best of luck.
