Description: 

Fishermans Reef is a right hand point break on a rocky point, located on the way out to Shakespear Park in the Hauraki Gulf on Aucklands east coast. Fishermans reef needs a big swell in order to bend around the point and break properly. The wave is short, fast and hollow. Watch out for shallow rocks off the point. Good for intermediate to expert surfers.
