What we offer

We offer a range of courses and programmes throughout the year, for people of all ages and abilities.

Get involved!

Throughout the summer, people of all ages descend on Tairua Beach to cool off, play and have fun. Our Club is responsible for patrolling the beach during the busy summer period.

There are many ways you can get involved with our Club, without even getting wet. Patrol Support, Parent helpers, becoming a member, supporting a committee or becoming a sponsor.

Because of the generous help of many, we are able to patrol the Tairua Beach and train the next generation of lifeguards. Come down this summer and find out what it's all about!

Welcome to Tairua Beach

Tairua is a renowned expert-level surf beach that draws some of the top surfers from New Zealand and around the world. It is a challenging beach. The bay can be calm as a lake or boast swells that see jet-ski tow in conditions for the brave surfer. Tidal conditions see ever changing rips, sand bars and lagoons appearing along the 1.6km beach. 

Thank you to our partners

From gold level partnerships through to those who provide equipment or sponsor food,
we are privileged to have you on our team.

Let's work together
