Omanu Masters are the current New Zealand champions (9 years running). The key to our success is having fun and being in good company. So come along and join the camaraderie.

You can graduate to Masters from age 30 years, from there, there is no age limit, with one of our team members in the 80+ age group.

You can pick your level of involvement, from seriously competitive (in which you are welcome to train with the seniors), to just giving it a go. Our more experienced members are always happy to teach you how to use the surf equipment, or to offer a few pointers.

Being part of our Masters team is a great way to challenge yourself, stay fit, and maybe even reclaim a part of your youth. Most importantly, being social is a key emphasis.

Important Dates

Masters athletes are welcome to train with the senior squad. For more details click here

Omanu also has its very own swim club. For swim training details click here

Omanu Beach SLSC provides as much equipment as it can so athletes can undertake training at the highest level. Funding is  sought every season to maintain our equipment.

Athletes who are a part of the Senior and Masters Athlete squads are required to pay a Sports Fee of $100 dollars for the season. This cost will cover athlete’s board allocation, board repairs and the use of the club rooms. You do not need to pay this fee, if you own your own equipment.

Masters sessions are free. However, if you wish to train under the programmes provided by our Head Coach, Assistant Coach or Sprint Coach, you are also required to pay a $100 Coaching fee
Payment can be made at registration time or through the office.

Boards are provided for the athletes use. A gear allocation form needs to be filled out, signed and returned before any board is allocated. Boards are allocated with consideration to results, commitment to training and attitude. For example, at the beginning of a new season athletes will be ranked/grouped according to who medalled, consistently made finals, trained hard and displayed commitment.

There are boards available for everyone to use, on a first come first served basis.

Athletes are required to purchase club togs and a cap for racing. These items can be purchased through the club office.

Once you have paid the athlete’s training fee, you will be provided with a safety vest. Safety vests MUST be worn when in the water at training as well as during competitions. If you loose your safety vest will need to purchase another one.

Wetsuit gear is also essential during the months leading up to summer. Appropriate wetsuit gear can be purchased from our sponsor Mount Surf Shop.
