Verse of The Day
“Otiia i a ia e hurihuri ana i enei mea, na, ka puta moemoea mai tetahi anahera a te Ariki ki a ia, ka mea, E Hohepa, e te tama a Rawiri, kaua e hopohopo ki te tango i a Meri, i tau wahine; na te Wairua Tapu hoki tona hapu. A e whanau ia he tama, me hua e koe tona ingoa ko IHU: no te mea mana e whakaora tona iwi i o ratou hara.” (Matthew 1:20-21)

Other Coastlines - Omaha
Written by Steve Marshall   
Saturday, 23 December 2006

Peter Furze has provided a copy of an advertisement that appeared in Slide magazine, a quarterly NZ journal about longboarding. The top photo in the advert is Ti Point Bar in 1976 and the bottom photograph was taken in 1990, when the bar disappeared.

As I understand it, the township of Omaha was built on the sandspit and shortly afterwards there was concern that the sandbar was eroding away, even though it was probably just in a low point in a natural cycle of erosion and deposition. The groynes were put in at the end of the sandbar which effectively destroyed the Ti Point Bar and annoyed a lot of surfers.

This is not something that we want to repeat at Ngunguru sandspit.
