TairuaBeach in Coromandel is a reasonably exposed beach break that has fairly consistent surf. Winter and spring are the best times of year to visit. Works best in offshore winds from the southwest. Clean groundswells prevail and the ideal swell direction is from the northeast. Waves at the beach are mainly rights. Best around mid tide when the tide is rising. When it's working here, it can get crowded. Dangerous rips are a hazard of surfing here.
