Wainui Surf Life Saving Club

Wainui is Gisborne’s oldest dedicated surf lifesaving club, formed in 1937, and we are proud to continue the underlying values established all those years ago. Our values: community service, volunteering, participation, development, team work, family, respect, responsibility, safety and high standards.

With its clean, glistening water and white sand – was a huge drawcard but its Pacific Ocean frontage and, at times, unforgiving seas ensured preserving and safeguarding lives became an early concern. The club evolved to provide a community service, sporting opportunities and a way of life that blended a healthy, outdoors lifestyle with camaraderie and solid family values.
