Mangawhai Heads surf break:
“This is one of my favourites on the east coast there are so many bank options if you want your own slice of heaven but most people come here for the rivermouth sand bar the bar can get really good and can handle a good size swell good fast barreling sections on the left and shorter more explosive waves on the right but the bar changes from year to year as the sand moves and the left and right on the bar can change massively from year to year the paddle out for the bar can be lengthy but its generally good for most intermediate to experienced riders the wave is fairly steep and packs some punch for a east coast break if you surf west coast breaks as i do like maori bay etc most of the time youll feel right at home i dont reccomend the bar for beginners as theres a lot of water moving out there and if you snap your board on a big day its quite a way back in to the sand but all of the other banks along both sides of the beach are really good for your beginner and the bar is a good milestone to reach once you begin progressing”

Orewa Beach surf break:
“The wave is quite fat at all tides and only gets really good on a tropical cyclone although the odd ground swell pushes in there. there is a good little sand bar at the rivermouth that gives good long rides for longboards and short boards the etiquette here isnt very good and there a lots of beginner/intermediates out there who like to drop in but if your a vocal dude they will stay off your wave longboarders and sups tend to wave hog but sups get dropped in on left right and centre just like any other beach so if your a sup i would reccomend steering clear of the bar and finding a another bank along the beach the bar paddle out is quite long but the waves are fairly soft so shouldnt be a problem for most surfers if you cant make the drive up to futher spots like tawharanui or mangawhai this place is a good compromise
despite how the site says summer and spring are the best times its actually better during cyclone season from march to the end of autumn and winter”

Los Pocitos surf break:
“Buenas playa, de fácil acceso. olas consistentes casi todo el año, aunque no de gran tamaño. exceptuando temporadas de swells o huracanes.
suele haber mas gente los fines de semanas.
si tienes suerte puedes observar tortugas marinas nadando en la playa.
se pueden correr olas de izquierda y derecha.”
