New Chumps

New Chumps

Short walk from Whangapoua

North of Whitianga. Break is 10min walk north to Wainuioto Bay. Walk features a beautiful nikau palm forest. New Chumps is a wicked place to camp overnight and surf in the early morning. Also New Chumps can only be assessed during low tide. The are rights peeling from rocks and a beach break in the centre. Need big swell to break coz it's quite sheltered.
