Hi woodfu,
it's true that it's hard to find nice waves in Muriwai.
I wanted just to point out that Auckland area can be really convenient. It's not a big deal do one session on the pacific and then one on the tasman. It happens to have strong NE in the morning and you can enjoy it in Orewa or in Mangawhai and then head west and catch some seabreeze. Eventually you can even do some wake at cable park at lunch time. :)

Muriwai is an epic location. Not many places you can do a 50km down winder with car support driving right next to you. I've been in the muriwai washing machine in solid head to double head and it is a powerful place. The waves jack and dump scary fast. You definitely don't want to get eaten by one of those monsters.

But I am ruined for waves. Anywhere else I have been in the country simply doesn't even come close to my local on an average day as far as waves/wind angle are concerned.

Sorry Ian, really all you're hearing in that post is my disappointment.. i know it can happen there (like anywhere around the north island) when our variable conditions line up, but the normal conditions don't really allow for it imo. Plummet where is your local, can i come?

Thanks for your tips! Have been to Raglan today and had a great time riding this amazing flatwater spot. The waves there were not so good which is why I headed down to Taranaki. Staying in New Plymouth now and wondering what the best spot (for waves) is tomorrow? The wind should be strong ;-)
