Surf for Life
Uplifting youth through surf programs in the Gisborne region.
Running from November to April for youth at-risk between 8 and 18yr olds. 


Women's summertime surf meet-ups

Surfing, cheese and wine... what could be a better way to finish a day!? A great way to meet people, try surfing or meet up with fellow surfers for a splash and catch up. November to March.


Surfing for Farmers
It's a chance to get farmers off farm during the busy time of the year and give them a chance to step away from what can be a very consuming business. December to March, every Tuesday 5:30pm. AgFirst Gisborne in conjunction with Gisborne Boardriders kicked off Surfing for Farmers in December 2018. 


Holiday Programmes
School holidays are a perfect opportunity to learn new things and have fun experiences across codes and organisations. We run multiple school holiday programmes with other sports codes or organisations such as YMCA or the Tonui Collab throughout the year.
