Situated on Auckland’s picturesque West Coast, Piha continues to be one of New Zealand’s most popular beaches, with its combination of black sand, great surf and glorious scenery. But the West Coast beaches of New Zealand are unpredictable and potentially deadly if not treated with caution and respect and Piha is no exception.

This season also features, a visit from the lifeguards of Huntington Beach in the USA; the annual Piha Big Wave Classic sees the biggest surf anyone can remember; the fast and furious Super-Cat races; and the Piha lifesavers take a trip to Raglan to help out.
