Eastern Regional Lifeguard Championships 2017

Yesterday on our walk along the beach we were surprised by an event being held, the Eastern Regional Lifeguard Championships for 2017 in which different teams from around the area compete against each other.

Teams were; Mount Maunganui, Waikanae, Piha Surf Club, Orewa Surf Life Saving, Papamoa Surf Life Saving and in the end Mount Maunganui won.

You can see the video footage I took while we were there watching one of the heats - primo scorching hot day for it.
