RE: new zealand surf/road trip

Hello, I was also thinking about coming to NZ but to work along the way to help fund my surfing travels. Couple of questions for those who have already been:
-is it cheap, average or expensive to live out there?
-what is the water temp and climate like on the north island, do u need a wetsuit all year, if so what mm?
-are there sharks there? It says on the feature on here alot of great whites are around south Aus- so they'll be here too right?
