New Zealand’s new wave park is an ocean-facing paradise

New Zealand is setting a new record for the number of waves surfers can enjoy in a single day, with the country marking a record of three days surfing in the sea.

The National Parks and Wildlife Service says the record was set last week at the Surf City Pier, on the South Island, in the Otago province.

Surfers can now take in the ocean’s beauty for up to six hours at a time, with waves measured in metres and surfers also allowed to stand in the water for up 30 minutes.

There are two wave parks in the country, Surf City and Surf City Wave Park, with both open from Tuesday.

It’s the latest wave park to be set up by the government, following the announcement of a wave park in the capital, Auckland, that is open for surfers for four days.

More to come.
