Come and enjoy surfing on the Mahia Peninsula!!

So good are the surfing conditions, many famous surfers have been spotted surfing here since the 50's. Mahia has numerous surf breaks that entice surfers from around the world. Blacks Beach, the first break you hit on the way to Mahia, has a reef break and acts as a swell magnet.

Mahia Peninsula is a Surfing Mecca

Situated on the sunny East Coast of the North Island, New Zealand, and includes some of the best waves and surf locations in the country.

Mahia has an excellent reputation for delivering reliable, consistent and high-quality surf in almost any weather condition.

Water temperatures in winter can get cold and a 3/4 steamer is recommended.

In the height of summer you can surf without a wetsuit although most surfers wear springsuits for those longer sessions.

The Mahia Peninsula's shape and geographical features mean that there is great diversity in the types of breaks and swell direction - with beach, point and reef breaks picking up swells from the north, east and south.
