Need advice on surf and work

My girlfriend and I are traveling to NZ from Nov. to May. Any beta on good places to live, with good surf, employment opportunities, ect.? We are both avid surfers planning on spending almost a year. Any tips will help.
Thanks

RE: Need advice on surf and work

Hey man, first up I reckon you need a car to fully enjoy the NZ surfing experience. Most good spots are pretty remote, and there's little to no bus system to get you there. Once you got wheels it doesn't really matter where you live, because it's a relatively small country. I personally think Aucklands a good base - plenty of jobs, and you have amazing spots about 2 hours north on the east coast, and piha and muriwai on the west cost about an hour away. South there's Raglan, Whangamata on the East. Some diehards might hassle living in the city, but I reckon it's a good central spot.
