New Zealand sits at the bottom of the Ring of Fire, representing the 10th longest coastline in the world, offering 15,134km of Pacific wave-breaking rock and sand. After splitting off Australia, sinking then being thrust up by volcanic activity between the Earth’s tectonic plates, New Zealand offers a unique surfing opportunity over a variety of points, reef, beaches and rivermouths in the temperate, stormy waters of the South Pacific.
