The 43-year-old Gisborne man had been missing since around noon on Thursday and a search team found his body around 10:30am today, Sergeant Greg Lexmond said.
His car had been found with his surfboard and wetsuit inside near a popular surf break yesterday.
Mr Lexmond said Mr Munro's family and friends had been part of the search operation.
"He was a very popular guy," he said.
His death was not being treated as suspicious, Mr Lexmond said.
