South spot, can get a thermal in summer and will be stronger then Lyall Bay. Long pebble beach.
The launch site can be found at Hikoikoi Reserve. You should head to the east end of the beach as kiting is only allowed here, not in front of the road. There is a park with grass where to rig up. Besides that there are a lot of shells an small drift wood on the beach.
If you’re a beginner, the best time to launch is between mid and low tide where you can walk out to sea for about 40 meters. There is a good 300m stretch of beach that does not run alongside the main road. Please stick to this are if you’re a beginner.
