Hi Nic, great work! Thanks for sharing the process, too. I was wondering if you could help me? I plan to visit Dunedin April 1-3. Could you suggest a hotel within walking distance of a good surf break? I am trying to avoid renting a car, but if the breaks are spread out, maybe I should. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

nancy, not long now eh!

try http://www.stclairbeachresort.com/home right next to the popular city beach, just walk over the road, or up the beach to st kilda. expensive, but close and luxurious

or cheaper option http://www.tahunabeachholidaypark.co.nz/ ten mins walk to beach st kilda, and you could walk to st clair

or my pick stay at Villa Rustica..
http://www.portchalmers.info/villa_rustica.html
The hosts are surfers, and do a homestay with surf tour packages, awesome hosts, great atmosphere, local surf knowledge. to surf, you'd need to take the surf tour package or have your own car as they are a good drive from the city breaks.
Just made a new post on the blog with a better breakdown of Villa Rustica.
