Surfing at Mount Maunganui New Zealand
   
MOUNT MAUNGANUI BEACH
To get there: from Tauranga take the Takitimu Drive State Highway 2, North East, over the harbour bridge. Then turn left onto eith Totara Street or Maunganui Road, down to The Mount and try to find a park near the beach. In summer it can get really busy round The Mount.

The main beach at Mount Manganui is your typical east coast beach with beautiful white sand. It’s extremely popular so the first rule of surfing here is to keep your eyes peeled for fellow surfers and swimmers.

The beach can often get a sucky, hollow shore break, and when it’s big you can use the rips to get out the back – great for saving energy for the paddling. This surf spot is brilliant because it’s great for all surfers, whether you’re a grommet or a hardened and knowledgeable local. You can snare a good right point break off the point at Moturiki Island, also known as the blowhole, at the south end of the beach.


Mount Maunganui is one of the most popular beachbreaks in Bay of Plenty, and can turn on some classic waves. It holds decent size and can accommodate the numbers of surfers who surf here quite well.
It is a consistent wave and receives plenty of swell.

Mount Maunganui is a featured break on the 2010 Hyundai Longboard Tour and hosts a number of other competitions throughout the year.

Our organisation is made up of volunteers who train hard year round to ensure locals and visitors remain safe in our region and beaches. Without sponsorship, funding and the generosity of donations and countless volunteer hours, we could not provide this service.
