Surf Sports

The Surf Carnival....

The surf lifesaving organisation as well as patrolling our beaches also runs competitions each year known as carnivals. These carnivals are held at a local, region & national level.

Waikuku Beach SLSC also has a wide array of sports equipment for members to use ranging from racing boards & surf skis to a fully equipped gym where members can train.

The current Junior Competition Co-ordinator is Viv Blay. The Director of Sport is Peter Stevenson. For more information on the competitions, please speak to either Viv or Peter.

There are several carnivals throughout the season, including internal and inter-club competitions. Participation is highly encouraged and there is an expectation that nippers will compete in at least 2 carnivals each season.

Children must wear togs and wet-suits are allowed prior to Christmas only. Parent assistance is required to support all the children as well as to make the day run smoothly. Carnivals that the club attends include:

  • Rarangi Carnival, Marlborough
  • South Brighton Carnival
  • Waikuku Carnival
  • South Island Junior Champs
  • Canterbury Junior Champs
