Orewa Beach in Auckland East Coast is a quite exposed beach break that only works when conditions are just right. Spring and Summer provide the favoured conditions. Ideal winds are from the west. Tends to receive distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the northeast. The beach break provides left and right handers. Best around mid tide when the tide is rising. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up.
