Mapere Beach in Gisborne and Mahia is an exposed beach break that has quite reliable surf and can work at any time of the year. Works best in offshore winds from the northwest and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Poor surf in light onshore winds Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the east. Waves at the beach are both lefts and rights. Good surf at all stages of the tide. The location means that it never gets crowded.
