Sweet Surfing in Homanga

Back to Top

boards for kidsHomunga Bay Beach is a sandy beach on North Island island (New Zealand). This coastal area is washed by the waters of the Tasman Sea. It is located in the northeastern part of the island, 40 km from Tauranga.

At the outskirts of the village of Whiritoa, some 9 km from its center. It is a medium-sized beach, whose length is approximately 200 metres. As for swimming, the water in this part of the coastal area is nice clean.

Our company sponsers the annual event called Sweet Surfing at Homunga ever year since 2001.

Hundread surf enthusiasts take part in the week long festival with waves, beer and lots of surfing.

Access to the sea is easy because the Homunga Bay Beach is inclined towards the water very slightly. The beach is of natural origin and was created by erosion. The locality is open for tourists and general public.

If you are an early bird , you can experience a gigantic sunrise here. Consider the low attendance at this locality, it is one of very important factors if you search for something specific . The coast is interesting due to the ragged look. Visit our gallery to see pictures of the event...


Boards for Kids

Back to Top

boards for kidsKids "learner" boards, much like an adult starting out, need to have enough volume to both catch a wave and then have the stability in order to stand up. The sizing depends on their age and size.

These boards need to be long, wide and thick, relative to the riders size. Most people will start by hiring a 'soft top' (see soft tops) that are particularly user friendly as they have a foam deck and dont hurt! These boards are ideal for catching waves and offer the most stability when trying to stand up. There are many learner boards on the market such as NSP's and Pop Outs that are injection molded plastic boards.

These are usually robust and hard wearing but tend to be a lot heavier than a custom board (made from foam and fibre glass). This can cause problems with smaller children trying to surf as they'll physically struggle with these weightier boards.. Some times a 'foam and fibreglass' board is the solution. However you'll notice that the 'plastic' boards tend to be cheaper.

Whatever type of board you go for, be it a new custom board or a molded board, your board will need to be of the same sort of size. Kids learner boards are usually between 6'6" and 7'6". The easiest way to look at it, is to imagine that a 7'0" is ideal for an average 12 year old.

This isn't to say a child cant surf on something smaller or something bigger either. There's a good chance a child will be able to stand up on something smaller, but then will struggle to catch waves on their own. The problem going too much bigger is that they wont be able to physically handle the board in the water.
