If you are travelling New Zealand with a surfboard, it might be useful to download the app Sherpa Surf Guide.

From the New Zealand Herald: ‘This is an iPhone application that tells users where the best surf is anywhere in New Zealand. The app is basically a digital surf guide plus a surf forecasting service which are two services that have yet to be combined. This is a huge advantage to surfers who are on the road, as they can get information update hourly about the conditions and the surf breaks on their phones.’
