The Gisborne Boardriders Club received support for the hosting of The National Scholastic Surfing Championships, a competition for high school aged competitors and is considered the pinnacle of junior surfing in New Zealand.

This is a high profile competition, which attracted hundreds of competitors and their supporters to our region at a traditionally quiet time of the year.

The benefit of this event fitted well within the new funding assessment framework as it attracted people to the region, raised the region's profile and celebrate our region and its assets.
