Rescue PihaAuckland, Spring 2010
[gallery link="file"] West of Auckland, there is a black iron-sand beach called Piha, that has a reputation of being one of the most popular surf beaches in New Zealand. But due to its unforgiving rips and currents, it also earned a reputation of being the most dangerous. If you have ever seen the television show: Rescue Piha, it will put the real danger into perspective for you. In the last 20 years more than 30 people have drowned at Piha alone. Even so, it was the beach I learned to surf!
