Hot water Beach in Coromandel is a reasonably exposed beach and point break that has quite reliable surf. Spring and Summer provide the best conditions. Works best in offshore winds from the west. Clean groundswells prevail and the optimum swell angle is from the northeast. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights. Best around mid tide when the tide is rising. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Beware of rocks and sharks.
