Whale Bay

Whale Bay is a nice Point break. New Zealands West Coast usually has some swell. The swell machine Tasman sea nearly always creates some surfable waves. While Raglans points need a bit of swell to work, the angle of the bay means that with the prevailing south winds you get clean-as offshore waves.
