Red Beach Surf Guide

Red Beach in Auckland East Coast is a quite exposed beach break that only works once in a while. Spring and Summer provide the optimum conditions. Offshore winds blow from the west. Tends to receive distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the northeast. Waves at the beach are both lefts and rights. Best around mid tide. It's sometimes crowded here.
