KASK Surf Festival 2025

April 23, 2025 @ 12:00 am - April 27, 2025 @ 12:00 am

KASK Surf Festival will be held at Waihi from PM Wed 23rd to midday on Sun 27th April 2025.

More details to follow but lock in the dates now.

We expect 2025 will follow a similar format to 2024.  In 2024 there was:

Surf Contest – we are planning on heats being on Saturday with finals on Sunday, so if you are into fun and want to strut your stuff, please register your interest by emailing me at [email protected] prior to the event or by letting me know by no later than 5pm on Fri 26th April 2024 at Waihi.

Formal Novice Surf and NZ Surf Sirens (women’s group) training will be available – concentrating on Surf Zone Skills and Management – covering: Body Paddle and Boat Position, Paddling Out, Catching a Wave, Riding the Face, Broaching and Side Surfing and you will need to book at the time of registration.


For skilled paddlers who are a bit rusty there will be volunteers on the beach to assist you with launching, landing, bracing, and managing your kayak in the soup.

Limited accommodation will be available at the Surf Club, and for those preferring to camp nearby, we suggest that you checkout:
