These boards ride better than their price would suggest.
The locals at Fitzroy Beach in New Plymouth put them through their paces
and ripped the waves apart. The boards were good at catching waves and
fully capable of doing advanced manouvres. In fact the lads had a mini
contest on them and there were 8-point rides going down.
Bumper Boards are the cheapest, safest, most fun
way to go surfing.

1. Awakino Beach is located in North Taranaki on State Highway 3, 98
kilometres North of New Plymouth. The beach is black iron sand with a
scattering of shells over its foreshore. This is the first glimpse of
the Tasman Sea when you emerge from the Awakino gorge. Hearts start racing
in anticipation from here as this is the indication of what swell is hitting
the Taranaki Coast. This area responds best to a small swell. The Awakino
Rivermouth is a river bar break. It changes frequently and fires when
on. Access is down at the mouth - you'll figure it. The left over the
river is worth the paddle and stroll. Awakino Rivermouth The beach can
have good bars and is best in small swells on any tide. Offshore in a
6 - 8. Bell Block is located five kilometres from central city New Plymouth
and two kilometres from State Highway 3. Bell Block Beach is 250 metres
in length and is a combination of shingle, gravel, rocks and iron sand.
There is a small stream that runs out across the southwest end of the
beach and a reef 500 metres offshore. The beach has a good sized car park
that can accommodate around 100 cars. Behind the beach is a small grassy
reserve with shade and BBQ tables and further behind this lies residential
housing. Although the beach is mainly rocks and gravel, a small sandy
section is exposed to the northeast end from mid to low tide. The inner
beach break at Bell Block is not a very good wave. Local surfers and body
boarders do surf there when learning but will generally start traveling
to other waves once they have the basics. Bell Block Reef also provides
good waves in the right conditions. The reef is very shallow and dangerous
and is not advised to inexperienced surfers. It lies about 250 metres
offshore.The reef has good waves during a southwest wind. A walk south
along the beach can reveal some interesting options.
9 - 16 Town breaks. Waiwakaiho River Mouth and the Groyne are a classic example of what a good river bar break should look like. Takes any size swell and is the townies favourite. And those lucky enough to get it on. Commonsense and basic navigational skills will get you there. Better at half to full tide. Lefts and rights off a classic A-frame peak. The city's recent Coastal Walkway links Waiwakaiho to the harbour. Fitzroy Beach is located three kilometres north of New Plymouth. Fitzroy is a residential area and shopping suburb of New Plymouth and there is a great deal of housing on and around the beach making it one of the more popular local beaches. Fitzroy Beach is also home to New Plymouth Surfriders Club. The beach is iron sand with a scattering of rocks over the beach with larger bolder outcrops a few hundred metres either side of the Surf Life Saving Club. Behind the beach is a recreational reserve with a children's pool, playground, picnic area and shelters. The northern end of the beach also has a motor camp and around one kilometre to the north is the Waiwakaiho Rivermouth. Surfing at Fitzroy Beach is very popular and surfers would make up the majority of beach users. The beach gets larger, heavier swells during the winter months and regular smaller clean swells during summer. Fitzroy is a beach break and is best surfed on mid to high tide although it can be surfed on any tide. The beach is well known for having good barrels East End Beach is located on the same stretch of beach and around 1/2 km south toward the city. The beach has recently been stabilised by the city council with a rock wall that runs several hundred metres along the beach preventing further eroding and forms part of the Coastal Walkway. In behind East End Beach is a large grass reserve with a playground, park, skateboard ramp, putt putt and a large sheltered area suitable for picnicking. East End Beach regularly gets surfed every time there are good waves. End is a beach break that faces to the northwest and is offshore in southeast winds. The beach breaks at its best on mid to high tide, but can be surfed on any tide. Usually a foot smaller than Fitzroy. At the southern end of this stretch of beach is Boulters Bay. Often referred to as Boulders Bay and that is more apt. It is a left-hand Point Break and not often surfed. A lot better than it looks and is more suited to longboards. Can be surfed through all tides but needs a good sized swell to work. The sea breeze does not overly affect the bay at high tide where re-form right-handers peel into the small sandy beach. Bog Works. This is the next break along toward the centre of town. it is a bombora. Breaks best at low tide and in a big swell. Not for the faint-hearted. A 250 M paddle out and tricky to line up. The right is the pick of it, but if you are a goofy then you'll get all the waves you want. Light South/easters are best. Belt Road. This spot is the last to look at when everything else is too big. Even then guys look hard at it before committing. It is a Point Break and right adjacent to the harbour. There's 2 options here. The left-hander, the main break and a right across the bay. Best on half to high tide. Even the dreaded Westerly doesn't affect it too much. Back Beach is located four kilometres from the central business District of New Plymouth, just over the back of the Port. The beach faces directly west and like most of Taranaki's beaches, is made up of iron sand and scattered with rocks and boulders. There are two parking areas, the upper car park elevated around 20 metres above the beach (a good view of the whole beach, rips, currents, etc can be gained from here) and the lower car park that gives beach users more direct access to the beach. The area directly around the beach is a combination of residential and industrial zones mainly due to the beach's close locality to the port. The bars change here frequently and the beach needs to be checked regularly to get the best waves. The beach can be surfed on all tides but is usually best from mid to high tide. Back Beach is offshore in an easterly wind. Surfers at this beach are wise to be careful of the wave size as it can be quite deceptive. It has heaps of grunt and is usually a couple of feet bigger than Fitzroy. It has a history of a few car break-ins. Take care.
17. Oakura Beach is located 12 kilometres southwest of New Plymouth.
There are two entry points to the beach, both off State Highway 45 which
runs through the Oakura township. Tasman Parade joins with Messenger Terrace
and runs the length of Oakura Beach. There are many beach front properties
at Oakura Beach as well as a network of other residential housing. Oakura
Beach is only a beach break but it is often very good at one or two banks.
Many locals of all ages surf and it is uncommon to see the beach with
a wave and no surfers. It is home to the Oakura Boardriders Club and the
World Famous Biggest Surfboard. Butlers Reef is the local watering hole,
not a break. Oakura is best surfed in a south to southeast wind.
