About Oakura

In winter (May to Oct) the best option is to be in the New Plymouth to Oakura area. There are many good reefs in New Plymouth but for a mellower surfing environment, it is recommended to drive down to Oakura. This is where most New Plymouth based surfers head for shelter when the strong SW winds blow, and the consistent waves of Back Beach regularly turn on the quality. In Oakura proper there is a high tide beach break, suitable for beginners and some reefs to the S that are worth investigating.
