“The annual fire service surf champs were held in Epic conditions on the Taranaki coastline after a late change in location from Castlepoint due to all the forecasts saying “go to the Naki”.
There were 48 Competitors from all over the north Island with divisions ranging from open men’s, open women’s, longboard, Body board, Stand up paddleboard (SUP) and various age groups.
The waves were pumping, the sun was shining and after two days of competing we all headed back to the New Plymouth Fire Station for some “refreshments” and prize giving, thanks to the enormous generosity of surf product and building industry product every competitor took home some great bounty from the prize “floor” (prize table was too small)
Special mention and thanks to our sponsors of which “Smart Tool Group” was very generous in supplying a heap of fantastic product from hats, to blades ,to Bluetooth speakers.
