J from New Zealand
“Peka Peka is in the Wellington Region and the next closest break is Otaki.
90% of the waves are from wind swell and they don't usually line up that well. Best surfed on a board with a bit of volume to help you get through the flat sections of the wave. As with anywhere it can get good (a couple of times a year) but there are always better waves close by. It's ok if you've been surf starved or don't have a lot of time to look else where.”
