A new Papamoa Surf lifesaving club in 2019

It's within our reach, but we can't do it on our own.
We are working to build a new surf rescue base for Papamoa – one of
New Zealand’s fastest growing regions.

The Papamoa Community Surf Rescue Base Trust has one mission – to raise sufficient funds to build a new Rescue Base Building for the use of the Surf Club and other Papamoa-based organisations. 

We need to raise just over $5 million to turn this project into a reality. We have raised $4.4 million and now we need your help to get this project across the line.


To help , please go to our givealittle page by clicking below or contact us to discuss your ideas.

The future for this new building project is in your hands as much as ours. Please help us so that the Papamoa Surf Club and others can continue to help the community.

Thank you,

The Trustees of the Papamoa Community Surf Rescue Base Trust.

Mission: Our Club’s purpose is to prevent injury and drowning on Papamoa Beach.

Vision: Our Club vision is to deliver excellence in lifeguarding, surf sports and leadership programmes through strong membership and community engagement.

This is achieved through four interdependent community pillars:

Lifeguarding – self-preservation and the preservation of others through beach management and first aid skills
Surf Sports – developing fitter and faster lifeguards that achieve to their potential
Education – of schools and communities to raise awareness and skills around water
Leadership – developing life skills for leading others in critical incident situations through to inspiring a positive team culture.

All these skills are transferable wherever the lifeguard’s pathway takes them – school, family, teams, community and into the work force.
