New Zealand Quake Reshapes Coastal Reefs

A recent earthrquake struck New Zealand’s beloved Kaikoura, a region known for it’s surfbreaks and pristine coastline. An article by the New Zealand Herold stated, “Stunned locals found that the sea bed had lifted by at least a metre after the quake, leaving the sea floor exposed and killing countless paua, crayfish and seaweed.

It’s a potential disaster for local fishers, and now Kaikoura’s many surfers and surfing businesses can only wait to see whether it will destroy or improve its existing breaks – or create entirely new ones.”
