About Us
Welcome to Gisborne Boardriders Club.

For us it's all about sharing the stoke – a feeling of happiness, connectedness, thrill, excitement that can even be spiritual sometimes. We love to share the stoke with others through our inclusive surf events and initiatives that bring the community together. Our goal is to create more opportunities for kids and communities who wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity.

Together with our partners and the help of the Gisborne community we aim to establish a generationally sustainable platform for development and growth of the sport of surfing.

The region’s consistent waves and great weather provide our surfers with optimal surfing conditions, whether they are just surfing for the fun of it or competing at a local, national or international level.
