Description: 

Mangahume is a right hand point break on a rocky point located south of Opunake. The wave is a solid, powerful right hand point with a hollow drop in. Leave this one to the experts.

Directions: 
From New Plymouth head south on the surf Highway, State Highway 45. Continue a little south of Opunake, just past Mataikahawai Road and just before Watino Road, park near the small stream. From here its a walk, following the creek down to the beach where you'll find a right hand point. (Sky Williams is the left hander on the same point). Note, you can only access by walking along river, and other surrounding land is private property that you must not cross.
