Surfing is a natural pursuit along New Zealand’s stunning easily accessible coastline as the New Zealand lifestyle revolves around the beach. During summer from December to March Kiwis don’t consider they’ve had a proper weekend without a swim or surf. Good reliable surf breaks are common in all seasons and many beachside surf shops and hostels hire out surfboards to visitors. So it’s relatively easy to catch the perfect wave.

The North Island offers warmer waters and excellent beach, point, reef and bar breaks at places such as Auckland’s Muriwai and Piha, Ahipara, Tauranga, Whangamata, Gisborne, Taranaki and Wellington. The Wairarapa Coast is famous for its giant roller coasters and gnarly rinse cycles.
