Peka Peka in Wanganui-Manawatu is a reasonably exposed beach break that does not work very often with no particular seasonal pattern. Offshore winds are from the southeast. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the northwest. The beach break provides left and right handers. Best around high tide when the tide is falling. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Watch out for .
