Held at Waihi Beach this past weekend, The North Island surf boat Championships was the third round of the New Zealand Surf Boat Series.
Sunset Beach Surf Boat crews could only stand and watch as the huge surf at Waihi Beach was relentless. The only crews to race were the open men’s and much later in the day, one final race for 7 women’s crews.
The crews were disappointed but were happy they were all safe and unharmed. Series medals were decided on points from the last 3 series. ‘The Young Guns’, received a Gold medal for winning the U23 Men’s Surf Boat Series, while the Sunset Hipsters took out a Silver Medal in the U19 Men’s.
