Waimarama Life Saving Club is located at Waimarama Beach 30 km
east of Hastings, Hawke's Bay, New Zealand. Waimarama Beach is a
sandy open water beach facing the Pacific Ocean. Good surf and
clean water, along with a strong beach community make us a great
location for our surf life saving club. We provide a weekend surf
patrol on Saturday from 12 - 5 pm and on Sunday 10 - 5pm. Patrols
start in November and finish in March.
We train our members to become valuable Life Savers who
patrol our beach, teaching techniques from surf
swimming through to vital life saving and resuscitation
skills. During patrol season, Junior surf (ages 5 -
14) training is conducted at the beach each Sunday
morning from 9.45am.
Once 14 and a qualified lifeguard Surf Sports competition
provides members the opportunity to refine and practice their
lifesaving skills in the competition arena at local, state,
national and international level. Surf Sports forms a
significant component of the Surf Life Saving movement. Competition
improves a surf life savers' lifesaving skills.
