Paekakariki Surf Lifeguards

Haere mai

Welcome to the website of the Paekakariki Surf Lifeguards.

We’re a volunteer surf life saving club on the Kāpiti Coast, just outside of Wellington, New Zealand. Our membership is made up of 200+ members across both junior and senior divisions.


We have over 80 active lifeguards and have one intake of new lifeguards each year.

Nippers – Junior Surf

We have a strong junior surf programme with over 150 members.

Surf sport

We offer the full range of surf life saving sports here at PSL.

Uniforms and gear

Lifeguard uniforms, club uniform and merchandise. Info here!

Venue hire

Update 20 July 2020: We are not currently taking venue hire bookings.

We hire out to events of 80 max and are suitable for community events, small weddings, family reunions, funerals and the like. Hire cost is on a case by case basis.

New building project

Our current clubhouse has passed its best-before date, and we’re currently seeking a new lease, resource consents and funding.

Our little slice of paradise

We’re lucky enough to have a micro-climate that’s a tad warmer than Wellington, and we have stunning views of Kāpiti Island.
