Went down Ripiro Beach from Bayleys with the group doing the Kaipara 600. Gave it a crack up to the lighthouse. Made it up there without too much hassle. It was much less wavy this time around, but the key as with all sand is just keeping up the speed and momentum. One guy got near the top and launched his bike when the dune disappeared into thin air! We also made our way round Pouto Point, it was soft in places but nothing like what Eddie experienced. I guess just like the dune system it changes from day to day.
