One common question is where is the best place to surf in New Zealand? The answer is probably Raglan, which is special due to it’s unique point breaks and the angle of the swell combined with the prevailing wind direction relative to the beaches there. Other areas to consider are Southland, where large Pacific Antartic swells result in big waves. Other popular locations are Gisborne, Piha, Mount Maunganui, and Taranaki. Spot X perhaps?
