Flat Rock at Tangoio in Hawkes Bay is an exposed reef break that does not work very often with no particular seasonal pattern. Offshore winds blow from the west northwest. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the southeast.. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Watch out for rocks.
