Taranaki Surfing reserve

The Surf Protection Society want the entire Taranaki coastline to become an official surfing reserve. 
Mr Shanks said such a move would not necessarily give the surf breaks any greater legal protection than they now enjoy under the regional council's regional policy statement. "But what it would do is turn peoples' heads towards the importance of the coastline and its surf breaks. It would mean that if in the future there needed to be debate about any particular break and the effects any developments might have on it, the reserve classification would give us a base for the debate." 
What do you think? Is it a good idea?
