Pukerua Bay in Wellington is an exposed beach and reef break that does not work very often with no particular seasonal pattern. The best wind direction is from the southeast. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the west northwest. The beach break provides left and right handers. Rarely crowded here. Submerged rocks are a hazard.
