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.
