The surf at Matakana Island will be a foot bigger than the surf at Mt Maunganui, and the waves will be hollower. It produces great tube rides when the winds are right.
You might be tempted to get to Matakana Island by paddling across the Tauranga harbour, however due to the danger posed by ships, and rising and falling tides, you should rather travel by boat.
Offshores are from the south west.
