Why is Raglan so famous for surfing?

Raglan is simply a very good surfpsot, it produces amazing waves and is very consistent.  Raglan is also a small town so there are amenities there.  The big problem with Raglan though are the crowds.

The ave is also famous for being a long left and the wave gets protection form the prevailing south west winds which messes up other west coast spots.
