Weld Road in Taranaki is an exposed reef break that has pretty consitent surf and can work at any time of the year. Works best in offshore winds from the southeast. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the southwest. A right hand reef. When the surf is up, it can get quite busy in the water. Submerged rocks are a hazard.
