The Clutha District has some of New Zealand’s best kept surfing spots. It gets colder down this area, so you will need to wear plenty of rubber!
While the Clutha coastline is still largely undiscovered in surfing terms, it is known to have some of the most reliable waves. With many reef breaks along this coast, you will have enough to keep you riding for some time! The Catlins, being such an exposed coastline frequently experiences wild weather and heavy ocean swells which attracts big-wave surfers.
