About junior surf
We wish to extend a warm welcome to all current and prospective Orewa Junior Surf Lifesaving members and families to our Club. Our Junior surf programme offers a family-friendly development platform underpinned by our strong belief that it takes a village to develop a lifeguard. Our focus is on building a strong foundation of surf knowledge and skills, fitness, water safety and fun all within a safe and friendly environment. Our approach fosters aspiring future lifeguards, athletes, and families looking to engage with their local community and beach in a safe and fun way with family and friends. Junior surf is facilitated by our Coaches and supported by you, our family members across all age groups, along with OSLSC Lifeguards.
We look forward to seeing you on the beach and hope you enjoy the experience as much as we do!
