Mark L from New Zealand
“Surfer Onemana in early January. Light offshores, turn of the tide from high, swell 3-4 ft.

A very nice set up at the right time of the tide, and with the offshores. I suspect the best time is an hour or two either side of high tide, but my experience is limited.

The beach has at least three, maybe four decent breaks, with a very sucky right popping off the sandbar next to the rocks at the south end (right) of the beach. There are two L/R peaks and then a left off the rocks at the northern end, but I didn't spend any time there.”
