Heads Volunteer Surf Lifesaving Patrol
VSLSP HQ is situated at Ocean Beach, 40 minutes East of Whangarei,
a city of 35,000 on Northland's East Coast of the upper North Island
of New Zealand, or, more commonly referred to by us as, "Godzone".
climate is semi tropical, with summer temperatures often reaching
around the 30C+ mark. Our little patch of paradise is 800 meters
wide, the sand white and powdery, and with minimal shade, can get
blisteringly hot on an average mid summer day.
It's a non-typical New Zealand exposed East Coast, postcard picture
perfect beach, raw, with strong rips and deceptively quick side
currents provided for our entertainment. The body surfing's great,
patrolling proactive, and we love it!
