Orewa Beach in Auckland is a fairly exposed beach break that only works once in a while. Spring and Summer provide the optimum conditions. Offshore winds are from the west. Tends to receive distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the northeast. Waves at the beach break both left and right. Best around mid tide when the tide is rising. Relatively few surfers here, even on good days.

Visitor Reviews of Orewa Beach

jack schreuder from NEW ZEALAND writes:

Orewa is a sweet beach when she works and it is were I learnt to surf. Whether you're a beginner or advanced you can get some great rides. Occasionally it barrels but they pinch after about 6 seconds. Also the wave face is not really steep so nosediving or pearling should not occur
