taranaki really does have great waves, the locals love these spot with a lot of heart and they're big guys, so be respectful

You fucks in Ire. Why dont you stop and put things in perspective. This shot I hope will put things in perspective for you. Now, I am very fortunate to have some GREAT Irish Internet surf mates here. (you know who you are). But look at this shit. And NO kiwi mother fucka is saying " oh, MSW,dont tell anyone about our secret. You fuckin Irish kid wankers that just thought you discovered waves, heres my cock, cram

ire has some great waves and some fuckin great people and good people. My last comment is addressed to people that think in selfish terms and just simple dont understand that the world is an amazing place and if we all take the time to share our backyards with people from other places and cultures, maybe just maybe, the fighting and killing will stop. it is very simple. i am not a hippie, dont need to be to understand simple shit.

I wish the original Plymouth was like this. Some bright spark decided to build a break water, to make it easier for ships to dock or something? Knob!

I spent many years in North County San Diego and Orange County as well. Good wave at trestles and the water is nice and warm sometimes with the nuke power plant. Just too many people.
