Tairāwhiti Gisborne has some of the most consistent surf in New Zealand. A strong swell passes our coast, moving from south-west to north-east, and there’s a steady sea breeze, creating many different types of breaks for new and expert surfers.

Popular surf breaks include Roberts Road/Waikanae, Gizzy Pipe/Midway, Sponge Bay,The Island, Wainui Beach, Pines/Okitu, and Makorori Beach.
