Surfing in Coromandel and Bay of Plenty

My wife and I will be visiting in early Feb. She likes warm weather and relaxing beach time, maybe with a little spa thrown in. I'd love to find a little surfing -- I'm mostly a long boarder and am not looking for anything huge. Any recs on places to stay would also be a help. Thanks!

There is a surf shop at Hot Water Beach, and if you are there at low tide you can also dig a hot pool on the beach.


There is surfing along much of the coast. Places like Whangamata, Pauanui, Mt Maunganui are also popular.

Mt Mauganui would be an excellent base, plentty of surf spots (and long boarders, plus hire shops) right along the main ocean beach. Also great little town centre with cafes galore, boutique shops and spa treatments which include the Mount Hot Saltwater Pools.
