About Sumner Bar (Christchurch)

If Sumner Bar is on, most waveriders check Taylor’s Mistake, which is a bit more exposed to an E-NE swell and gets some juicier lefts and rights near the beach headlands. Banks Peninsula’s unreal coastal features make it a tough place to travel, with hellish, windy gravel roads.
