Waikato police are investigating after two people were shot at while surfing last week.

The pair were surfing off Te Maika peak last Thursday when they were shot at - with bullets hitting as close as 2m away.

Police said someone had taken exception to 'strangers' using 'their' water.

The shots came from surrounding bush land, which was commonly used for hunting, police said.
