Te Pou North Piha Surf Club

The North Piha Surf Club was originally designed as an Auckland School of Architecture project, and built by the local North Piha Community on land donated by Les Waygood in 1950. In the early 80’s the club was refurbished and modified to meet the growing needs of the club membership. Now almost 70 years old, the North Piha Surf Club can no longer meet the operational needs of the United North Piha Lifeguard Service. The rebuild of the North Piha Surf Club aims to create a functional lifeguard base and training facility, that can be shared with the wider community.

In 2007 the Club commenced a project to rebuild the clubhouse. Resource Consent was granted for the project in 2021 after a club investment of some $150,000. With Auckland Council confirming 35% cornerstone funding for the construction phase of the project, and after COVID delayed securing crucial funding, we began work on the Te Pou build in January 2023. The new facilities will include a 20% increase in bunk-room numbers and sufficient catering facilities, so that the facility may be utilised by schools and other community groups to deliver outdoor education and other community programs.

Current costing put the total project cost at over $6,000,000 by its completion in April 2024.

The club is reliant on public and other charitable and philanthropic support to fund the $500,000 shortfall in the build costs.

Te Pae Patrol Tower

Thanks to the generous support of our community and sponsors we completed the build of our new Patrol Tower, Te Pae, at the end of 2022. The tower has been an incredible addition to the patrolling of North Piha beach, and has itself won multiple architecture awards.

We now turn our focus to completing the build of Te Pou, our new clubhouse facilities.
