Let the training begin!
MOUNT MONSTER

SATURDAY 11TH DECEMBER 2021

Developed in 2013, the Mount Monster is New Zealand's most prestigious surf lifesaving endurance race. Athletes from across NZ gather each December on Mount Maunganui's Main Beach for their chance to race on one of the most spectacular coasts. You'll be inspired by the terrain but also challenged by the running, swimming, ski paddling and board paddling, with a few fears tested by the iconic rock jump. Whether competing in a team or as an individual, lifeguards use this event to become fitter, faster and more skilled, as they hunt Mount Monster glory.

SKI 12 km

A minimum of a 50N PFD is required for the Ski discipline. There will be a PFD check on the start line.


Let the racing begin! Pick up your craft and head straight out to sea, where you will head out to North rock, then paddle down the coast towards Omanu. At Omanu paddle into shore where a flag in knee deep water will be, that you must round before making your way back to Mount Main beach.

RUN 5 km

After the 12km Ski paddle, you'll start your 5km soft sand run to the Tay St turnaround and back. Shoes and socks may be worn.

OCEAN SWIM 1.5 km

After heating up from the run leg, get ready to jump off the ‘blowhole’ on Moturiki Island into the refreshing water below.

Competitors can choose to do the traditional 6m jump or opt for a 1m jump. Exit the water in shark alley and run between the flags to complete the remaining swim component.

BOARD PADDLE 6 km

You're almost finished! Paddle around North rock, this time making your way to Motuotau Island. Round Motuotau island, left to right and make your way back to the main beach. Run through the transition to complete the 6km Board leg and THE MOUNT MONSTER!!
