Surf Life Saving under 14 national champs

The "Oceans18" event was a gathering of surf life saving clubs from across New Zealand, with the Under 14 participants competing in events like beach sprints, swimming, relay, kayak and more. 

It was impressive to see these young kids swim out into surf that would make me think twice before diving in. And so very cool to see all the young ladies fiercely competing and showing their strength and skill!!!
