Eyeball surf reportRecent Eyeball Surf Reports for Gisborne and Mahia

  1. The fading east swell was getting in here more than at the more famous spots to the wast and the wind was light offshore. Sets overhead but most waves just faded into deep water with the odd one walling up. Just two of us out.
    Old Man's Hat, 2 km away
  2. Still good here with offshore winds and waves about shoulder high all day. Much less swell than yesterday. 8 surfers out in the am.
    Tuahuru Reefs, 1 km away
