Coming from Takaka, Ruby Bay is always worth a look, if only to verify that the breaks around Nelson city will be on. A falling tide and the last long-boarder has left. With a SW wind and waist high waves at Ruby, Delaware Bay or Whangamoa will be the best bet, especially if the swell has some west in it.
