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.
These starting lists are generated from entries received and do not constitute the draw. The draw and final number of heats will be generated once marshalling is complete and published on the Live Results website.
You can follow the live results here via our website or download the SLSNZ app.
Media releases will be posted in the SLSNZ website newsroom at the conclusion of each day.
