The 2017 International Surf Rescue Challenge (ISRC) was hosted by Surf Life Saving New Zealand and held at Mount Maunganui, Tauranga on Thursday 30th November - Sunday 3 December 2017.
This event included the 2017 International Surf Rescue Challenge & 2017 International Surf Rescue Youth Challenge. Additionally, the 2017 Tri Nations Challenge and 2017 Trans-Tasman Challenge were contested as part of this event.
The event was based around a comprehensive competition programme conducted over three tests, which included swim, surf board, surf ski and beach events. The ISRC originally started in 1939 as the Trans-Tasman Series between Australia and New Zealand, with the current format of the event first conducted in 1999, which included South Africa and then followed by other countries, which are currently participating.
An overall point score was maintained in both the Open and Youth categories with the winners being declared the Open and Youth 2017 International Surf Rescue Challenge Champions.
