The Eastern Regional Championships (ERCs) has a proud history of being not only one of the biggest surf life saving events held in New Zealand, but one of the most competitive. Despite the Eastern Region spanning the Coromandel, Bay of Plenty and Gisborne Local Areas, the event attracts competitors from throughout the country.
ERC’s offers almost all of the events available at the New Zealand Championships, drawing upon the best of the best to determine the Eastern Regional Champions and Overall Top Club.
The competition includes a wide variety of events, requiring varying levels of technical skill and physical fitness. With surf and weather conditions constantly changing, the competition has proved to be one of the most exciting competitions of the Surf Life Saving calendar.
Making an appearance at Midway Beach, one of the prestigious anchor venues of the National Championships, we invite you to celebrate the skills and experience of some of Surf Life Saving New Zealand’s very best athletes in Gisborne as they compete for their friends and against their fellow athletes.
Tairáwhiti/Gisborne is proud to sponsor the 2019 Eastern Regional Championships in Gisborne. Surf Life Saving New Zealand is excited to be partnering with Tairáwhiti/Gisborne, showcasing everything that the region has to offer and why Gisborne remains one of the premier National Surf Life Saving Event venues.
Also commonly called East Coast and Eastland, the Tairāwhiti region extends from east of Ōpōtiki in the north to the Mohaka River in the south. What lies between is an almost untouched paradise of spectacular surf beaches, inland wilderness, fertile vineyards and farms, marae and settlements, gorgeous lakes and rivers and Gisborne, a city thriving with cafes, hotels and historic sites.
Explore what the region has to offer at the Tairáwhiti/Gisborne website here.
