Willy - It´s near Gisborne ? how much time in a car ?

Classic on its day - Roberts Road is a great wave on its day.I've had the pleasure of surfing this place at 4 foot and peeling perfectly, blue sky and light offshores all day with minimal crowd disturbance because as many East Coast surfers know when there's swell the choice of breaks is practically endless.In my experience though Roberts can be the cleaner of all nearby breaks if the swell is huge and from the NE, however the more the swell turns to the South the more it picks up. There are better breaks than Roberts in the area but its always worth a check and you could score it sweet. The locals are great as well.
