Welcome to Midway Surf Life Saving Club on Gisborne’s Centennial Marine Drive

We’re a family-focused club providing a safe environment to swim, and opportunities for anyone to learn water skills.

Midway Beach is stunning and expansive. Just three minutes drive from the centre of Gisborne it’s a favourite spot for swimmers, surfers, families and beach-goers year round.

Our focus is safety and fun in the surf and we’re in it for life!

We patrol Midway Beach in Gisborne through the summer months on Saturdays and public holidays 1pm-5pm, and Sundays 9.30am-5.30pm.  The red and yellow flags show the safest place to swim on the beach.

Whether you’re interested in surf sport, lifeguarding, meeting new people, or you’ve moved to Gisborne and just want a place to train – Midway Surf Life Saving Club welcomes you!

We offer a safe, friendly and welcoming environment where all members can interact and enjoy the health and social benefits of belonging to a club that embraces team spirit and inclusion.
