Home / Scholastic Championships

The National Scholastic Surfing Championships are the pinnacle of junior surfing in New Zealand. The annual event is held at a different location each year. Unique to the event is the fact that surfers have to qualify to compete as part of twelve regional teams.  The event is held over five days and crowns an overall team winner plus individual winners in each of the following age groups:

Under 18 Boys  and Girls Divisions
Under 16 Boys and Girls Divisions
Under 14 Boys and Girls Divisions
Under 18 Longboard Division

Regional events are held throughout the country in the lead-up to the national event.  These events are used for selection purposes. Dates for these events vary from region to region.  Check back here or get in touch with your local coordinator, boardriders club or PE Teacher for more information.

Regional teams comprise up to twelve team members. Teams must comprise a surfer in each division with the remaining places in the team determined by each region’s strengths.
