Aramoana, 'The Spit': do not touch, it's sacred

The Aramoana Spit, one of the best surf spots in New Zealand, is under serious threat.

Surfers fear the expansion of dredging plans will end the quality waves in that Southern country’s peak.

Port Otago has asked the Regional Council authorization to dump dredge spoils at the Aramoana Spit, in order to allow larger ships to navigate through to the Port Chalmers.

Thirty years ago, the wave break could have been destroyed as authorities were planning an aluminum smelter. In those times, surfers and environmentalist stopped the disaster.

Aramoana is known for the perfection of its barrels. The Surfbreak Protection Society is lobbying local power to protect "The Spit" from ending surfers' dream spot.

Waves are constantly breaking all over the world, and if you're on a surf trip or family vacations it's always good to know you can rent a surfboard anywhere there's a gem to be ridden.
