Surfing the Southern Edge - Surfing New Zealand

Deep in the Southern Ocean, situated in the temperate latitudes between 35 and 50 degrees south, New Zealand is part of a weather cycle in which warm, low pressure air from the equator meets cold, high-pressure air from the South Pole. This is known as the Roaring Forties, westerly winds which have constant and high speeds. Consequently New Zealand feels the full force of the Roaring Forties and the swells that are forced to march up out of the deep. But that's not all, New Zealand can pick up swell from just about anywhere.
