Racing the Emerald Curtain
Kahutara could be Mangamaunus’ twin, except it’s heavier, less consistent and it’s also less scenic. It holds waves up to 10ft (3m) and is an excellent righthand rivermouth breaking over a reef of gravel and boulders. To its right is K Reef another great wave that breaks best on an easterly swell. There are over twenty other excellent surf spots given the right conditions - some are secret while others are right beside State Highway One.
