Welcome to the 2018 TSB New Zealand Surf Life Saving
Championships. 'Nationals' represents the pinnacle event of the
season with 1500 athletes anticipated to attend the iconic event.
From Masters who have lost track of the number of Nationals they
have attended to 15 year olds experiencing the event for the first
time, Nationals caters to all levels of participation and almost
all aspects of Surf Life Saving. You will see New Zealand
representatives, canoes, surf boat crews, surf swimmers, beach
sprinters, ski and board paddlers all having a crack at being the
next National Champion!
Returning to Midway Beach in Gisborne, we invite you to
celebrate the very best of Surf Life Savers as our members compete
for their friends and against their fellow athletes.

heats will be generated once marshalling is complete and published
on the Live Results website.
