WELCOME TO PIHA SURF LIFE SAVING CLUB INC.
Piha Surf Life Saving Club is one of New Zealand’s best. We patrol to the highest standard to keep you safe at one of New Zealand’s busiest, and most unique beaches. Proudly celebrating 80 years of lifeguarding.
Piha’s lifeguards are a mixture of youth and experience, from 7 years to 70 years, and beyond. There are experienced lifeguards who have been there for decades, and a great Junior section.
Piha Boaties (our surfboat crews) are on top both nationally and internationally. We are leaders in promoting surfboat racing throughout NZ and are recognised far and wide.
OUR SPORTS TEAMS
Piha Surf Life Saving Club’s competition teams are going from strength to strength under the guidance of coach Bjorn Battaerd.
Our lifeguards are amongst NZ’s finest, and we pride ourselves on the hundreds of preventative actions we take to alleviate rescues to keep you safe. You can help by always swimming between the flags.
Piha celebrates 80 years of life guarding this year. A fantastic achievement, with the traditions of old still apparent amongst the ‘clubbies’.
Piha has a fabulous Junior Surf section (‘Nippers’) with many strong family connections stretching through the generations. A fun environment for children, whilst learning about surf safety at an early age.
OUR SURF PATROLS
Our lifeguards are amongst NZ’s finest, and we enjoy an enviable reputation for our high standards. When you swim you must swim between the flags, and lifeguards will ensure your safety.
