Haast Beach on the West Coast is an exposed beach and reef break that is usually a safe bet and works all around the year. Ideal winds are from the east southeast. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell angle is from the west. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights. Surfable at all stages of the tide. It very rarely gets crowded here. Beware of rips, rocks and sharks.
