General Information

Also known as spot x is a great spot for wavesailing, freeriding, freestyle, slalom and even beginners on some days.Waitara has an outer reef which is about 400m from the beach which produces some good fun waves, its a great spot to learn how to wave sail  but is also good for the more experienced, best around low - mid tide for wave sailing.

There is an inner reef also which forms a lagoon,ideal for learning because its fairly shallow and is nice and flat, also good for freestyle,but be carefull going over the reef at low tide or it will take out your fin!

Waitara is best sailed in a southwest or westerly,in summer the sea breeze kicks in and makes for some very consistant wind. Popular with kiters also.
