Mangahume in Taranaki is an exposed reef break that has quite reliable surf and can work at any time of the year. The best wind direction is from the northeast. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the southwest. No reef break here. Best around mid tide. It very rarely gets crowded here. Submerged rocks are a hazard.
