Description: 

Mahia Reef is a left hand point break on a rocky point, located on the point at the southern end of Mahia Beach. Mahia Reef needs a big swell to get in there, so its pretty rare to get working well. When its on there are nice fat, peeling waves on offer. Suitable for all levels of surfer.
