Tahunanui bar in Nelson - Tasman Bay is a fairly exposed sandbar break that has inconsistent surf with no particular seasonal pattern. The best wind direction is from the south and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Does not handle onshore winds very well Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the north northwest. The sandbar breaks peel to the left. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Take care of the strong rips here.
