Today the search has taken me along the east coast of Northland. I set off this morning and took the car ferry over to Russel and then scooted down the coast passing numerous bays and towns: Oakura, Helena Bay, Matapouri and Tutukaka. Unfortunately there wasn’t even a hint of surf, flat flat flat!

After driving about 200km I eventually came back to Whangarei, so I decided to pop in and visit the waterfalls there, all good, an amazing view and nice little walk! I took the freeway back to Keri Keri and have ust been to the pub for a few beers and a feed.

Tomorrow I am going to drive up to the tip of the North Island in search of surf, there is a fresh 9ft swell coming in to 90 Mile beach and I have also packed the tent and camping gear and plan to stay up there overnight.

Hopefully tomorrow will prove to me a little more rewarding on the surf!
