SURF REPORT - HAMILTON NEW ZEALAND
Hamilton is situated in the North Island about an hours drive south of Auckland. Hamilton is the centre of the Waikato Region, one of New Zealand's richest agricultural region's. The city is built around the beautiful Waikato river. The Waikato river was once Hamilton's only transport and communications link. Now the main highway passes through the city linking the whole of New Zealand. While agriculture has traditionally been the dominant industry in Hamilton, other sectors (such as manufacturing and retail) are catching up and providing more diverse business opportunities in Hamilton.

SURF REPORT
Apart from special waves such as tsunamis, the only thing that produces the waves we see on our coasts is the action of the wind blowing over the sea surface. Waves arriving on a coast can be generated by local wind, in ‘real time’, in which case the waves are called windsea, or they can be the result of a wind that blew over the surface of the ocean thousands of kilometres away, up to several days before, in which case they are termed swell or groundswell.
