Description: 

Hardinge Road is a right hand point break on a stoney beach. The break is very sheltered from the port, so it needs a massive east swell to get it working and even then it will likely be small. When it is working, you will be rewarded with a really long, nice wally wave. Good for all levels of surfer.

Directions: 
From Napier city head east to Marine Parade then, head north round past Napier Port and on to Hardinge Road. Here find a park and get out there. Alternatively take Hyderabad Road north, on to Bridge Street and on to hardinge Road.
