Airport Rights in Wellington is an exposed reef break that does not work very often. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Offshore winds blow from the north and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the south. There is no reef break. It very rarely gets crowded here. Beware of rocks and obstacles.
