Karekare surf club as seen at the start of New Zealands summer. The guys and gals who volunteer as lifesavers have a tough job. Karekare is one of the most dangerous places to swim in New Zealand. This has lead to the KKSLSP being awarded the most meritorious rescue awards of any Lifesaving Club in New Zealand. The 'Surf Lifesaving Patrol' at Karekare started in 1935 after a dramatic sea plane rescue.
