Surf Boats

Surf boat racing involves teams of 4 strong rowers (men and women) and a sweep (the guy who steers the boat) racing off the beach, out through the surf, round a buoy and back through the surf to the beach again. Competition day comprises 6 races each of about 1200 meters and 5 minutes of adrenalin- pumping action and gut-busting effort.

Mairangi Bay Surf Lifesaving Club has a long and proud history in Surf Boat rowing.
