Watch: Incredible footage captured of waterspout towering over Napier

An incredible waterspout has been spotted at a Napier beach on Wednesday afternoon.

Tyrone Gooch was driving home when he spotted the large column of water and spray at Marine Parade around 5:30pm.

A video supplied to Newshub shows the swirling mass spitting water along the coastline.

"I would get the f**k out of here," he exclaims in the video. 

Gooch told Newshub it was a "pretty crazy experience".

Instability over the North Island has seen a number of significant downpours and isolated thunderstorms, according to WeatherWatch.

The forecaster expects the showers to clear on Wednesday night.
