We had a big weekend of Surf Days in the Hawke’s Bay and Wellington regions on the 17th and 18th February. The weather and waves turned it on for us which made for two awesome events.

Fifteen surfers came along to join in on the fun at Waimarama Beach, Hawke’s Bay. The sun was shining, and the waves were absolutely perfect for us. As always, we had the crew from Hawke’s Bay Boardriders and Waimarama Surf Lifesaving Club come along as volunteers to ensure our surfers were well supported out in the water. Thank you to you both, always a pleasure. It was also lovely to have Jemma from Blind Sports NZ, and Katie from Recreation Aotearoa come along to support on the day.

Heads up; the Boardriders will be holding another Adaptive Surf Day on March 24th at Waimarama – get in touch with Keri (029-1240748) if you’d like to go along to that.

The following day, Lyall Bay Surf Lifesaving Club came out in force and had some great laughs with our 13 surfers. Surfers, friends and whānau got out on the canoe too which is always a hit. To top off a fantastic day, we even had a visit from a pod of dolphins who popped in to say hi! It was also great to have Paul and Anne, our Halberg trustees join in on the fun. Huge thank you also to Craig and Susie who donated a bunch of wetsuits to our surfers so they can continue to brave the Wellington waters!

Last but not least, a big thank you to Pac’n’Save, Kilbirnie for providing us with the sausage sizzle goods for both surf days. Our surfers, whānau and volunteers were kept nourished throughout the day thanks to their ongoing generosity.
