Whatipu in Auckland is a fairly exposed beach break that has inconsistent surf. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Offshore winds are from the east northeast. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the west southwest. The beach breaks peel to the right. Best around high tide when the tide is rising. When it's working here, it can get crowded. Be wary of rips - they make surfing here dangerous.
