Kaituna Cut Surf Guide

Kaitura Cut in Bay of Plenty is an exposed beach break that has reasonably consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Offshore winds blow from the southwest with some shelter here from west winds. Tends to receive distant groundswells and the optimum swell angle is from the north northeast. The beach break provides left and right handers. Best around high tide. When the surf is up, it can get quite busy in the water. Take care of rocks in the line up.
