Great little family oriented club at the stunning resort of Riversdale Beach. An active surf beach 45 minutes from Masterton. You will need to book a bach to stay, or do some patrolling and stay at the club house with committee approval. 53 patrolling members last season 14 and growing new guards this year. An active nipper programme running 9.00am till 12.00 pm weekdays in January. Nipper carnival on the Sunday of Anniversary weekend is always a festive occasion with a wave testing most competitors. Call in and have a look. An unusual aspect is we have Volunteers and Regional Guards on duty at the same time. Patrols are out in front of the carpark by the club house and mobile patrols on quad bike run regularly the 3 km length of the beach. We will also be having a second patrol at the southern end of the beach this year until the 10th January unless demand requires it to stay longer.
