Orakawa in Coromandel is a fairly exposed beach break that has inconsistent surf with no particular seasonal pattern. Offshore winds are from the west southwest. Clean groundswells prevail and the ideal swell direction is from the east northeast. The beach breaks peel to the right. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Surfing here means negotiating dangerous rips.
