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.
Piha Competition Squads are strong and are getting stunning results nationwide. Under the guidance of Steven Ferguson they continue to improve and amaze!
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 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.
Located on Auckland’s rugged West Coast, Piha is full of stunning scenery and has a unique character renowned worldwide. Piha has one of New Zealand’s best known surf breaks.
