National Primary Schools Surfing Competition

The Gisborne Boardriders Club received support for The National Primary Schools Surfing Competition, held in September, designed for primary and intermediate aged surfers. 

This is a major coup for the region and our club, whose mission is to establish Gisborne as the development centre for junior surfing in New Zealand.There’s lots going on in surfing locally and it’s important to be able to be able to capitalise on that.

ECT general manager Leighton Evans says the potential benefits of this event fitted well within the new funding assessment framework.

“We are looking for events that can attract people to the region, raise the region's profile and celebrate our region and its assets," he says.
