Paekākāriki Surf Lifeguards is a volunteer surf lifesaving club on the Kāpiti Coast, just outside of Wellington, New Zealand. Our membership is made up of over 200 members across both junior and senior divisions.

We have over 80 active lifeguards who patrol Paekākāriki Beach throughout the summer and support in providing event crew to events such as the Ocean Swim Series and the Kapiti Women's Triathlon.

Our junior surf programme teaches surf skills to over 100 'nippers' each season, and introduces them to the sport pathway that also develops our lifeguards' skills.

Surf Sport events are held over the summer providing local, national and international competition for Surf Sport Lifeguards. There are a large variety of beach and water activities involved in Surf Sport disciplines including: swim, board, ski, run, canoe, surf boat and inflatable rescue boat (IRB).

There are also national pool competitions where members compete in swimming, rescue, and obstacle races.

We have a proud history in surf sports, over the years numerous club members have held national titles. We also have very experienced coaches who dedicate and volunteer a considerable amount of time to improving the surf skills of all our members.

Currently we have a strong group of champions but it is not all about winning for our club, we encourage participation and enjoying yourself while competing.
