Are you wanting your children to understand and respect the surf, perhaps gain more confidence in the surf, or maybe you have a child that is too confident around the surf?

Junior Surf is a programme designed for ages 7-12 to support children to learn about the surf, gain new skills and water confidence in a safe learning environment, operating at their own comfort level.


We are a part of Surf Life Saving New Zealand, which represents 74 clubs across New Zealand. Our small club has one of the longest retentions for members, with many families having two or three generations of lifeguards on the beach. Equally though, we welcome new members to join and be part of the special history of Karekare.


Offering one of the finest Lifesaving facilities on the West Coast, our clubhouse is ideal for any event to get together and enjoy a getaway.
