Maraenui in East Cape is a quite exposed reef break that only works once in a while. The best conditions for surfing are during the cyclone season. Offshore winds blow from the southeast with some shelter here from east winds. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the north. No reef break here Rarely crowded here. Take care to avoid the rocks.
