2023 Longboard Entry Form

The Annual Lifeguard Longboard Nationals is a long boarding surfing contest hosted by Mangawhai Heads VLS and has been running since 1992. Lifeguards from both NZ and overseas clubs make the annual pilgrimage to Mangawhai Heads to take part in this iconic event. To be eligible you must be a qualified lifeguard either past or present. The event is founded on the strong traditional ties Mangawhai Heads VLS has with surfing where old single fins and surfing without a leash is the norm. Divisions include Classic, Masters, Open Men’s, Women’s and Juniors. Over the years, the event has seen some great conditions and some excellent rivalry, but more camaraderie and friendships. The event is always finished off with the classic Line-Up shot and a cold beverage on the deck at the clubhouse.

The 2023 Longboard Competition is being held on: Saturday, 4 November 2023

Entry Fee - All Senior Divisions $80 per person. Menehune $40. Fee includes Tee Shirt and Meal / Refreshments. If you wish to enter multiple divisions there will be an additional $20 entry fee.
