As the first place to see the sunrise in the world, Eastland’s Gisborne is amazing for dawn surfing.

Home to some of the best breaks in New Zealand, Gisborne receives south, east and south east swells. Wainui Beach is the most popular spot for surfers of all levels as it consistently provides good waves throughout the year. Makorori Point is also a famous surf location, with right-hander breaks over a shallow reef system setting up a long sweeping ride.
