Velzyland is part of the strip of famous North Shore surf breaks, it is set apart from the rest and off of the main road, so seems more secluded. The land running up to the sand is wooded, which adds to the "private" feel and provides plenty of shade. Velzyland has both right and left breaks, and is a crowded surf spot all winter long. Surfers still flock to it when there is a swell during the summer, and it is also a popular spot for surf lessons. Parking is alongside the road, which can't be seen from the beach, and cars have been known to be stolen on occasion. Be sure not to leave any valuables in your car. The reef here is some of the sharpest in the North Shore. Also, the currents can be very strong here and the waves massive. It is best to stay out of the water unless you are an experienced surfer.
