Surf Boat Series extravaganza

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.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
