New Zealanders are as enthusiastic about the sport of surfing as their neighbors, the Australians. New Zealand surf regions include Northland, Auckland East, Auckland West, Raglan, Taranaki, Coromandel, Bay of Plenty, Gisborne & Eastcape, Napier & Wairarapa, Wellington, Christchurch & Kaikoura, Dunedin, and Westcoast North.

Like Australia, New Zealand has miles of coastline and favorable conditions, and surfing plays a big role in the Kiwi lifestyle. We have separated New Zealand surf spots into North Island and South Island locations.
