I’m looking for a rock ledge with the deepest water possible around it anywhere from Timaru south. I know there’s good ledges around Chch that you climb down cliffs to get to but I want to try some new ground that hasn’t really been LBG’d before…. so I’d like to look more towards Timaru – Oamaru. My personal number one criteria for a good LBG spot is the deepest water possible not too far way. The actual LBG spot can be shallow as long as deep water is close.
All the very top NZ LBG spots like Lottin Point and Spirits Bay are where the continental shelf drops off almost vertically from shore.
