Description: 

Waipiro Bay is a big bay with several peaks down the beach, a point breaks at the ends of the bay. There are a couple of streams going into the bay and several groups of rocks in the bay, all creating some different breaks. Watch out getting into the water as there are some rocks in the bay. The south end near the streams is one of the best spots with a right hand point break. Its has a sucky take off into a short barrel. By Frog Rock the wave is short and finishes into some rocks. Waipiro Bay should be left to the experts. Waipiro Bay is fairly sheltered from the shoutherly winds.
