Coastal Plan: Surf Breaks

Shows the approximate location of regionally significant surf breaks for use in coastal planning. Surf breaks were identified using the Wavetrack NZ surfing guide and through community consultation. The breaks identified are divided into the following classes: Point Break - where waves hit a point of land or rocks jutting out from the coastline. Beach Break - waves break on a sandy seabed. Reef Break - waves break over a rocky seabed or coral reef. River Mouth - waves break at a river mouth; waves can break over rocky ledges or sandy bottoms. Ledge - waves break over rocky ledges.

Surf Breaks are shown on the Bay of Plenty Regional Coastal Environment Plan maps (RCEP). Operative December 2019.
