Get excited for Party Waves return for 2024! Happening next Saturday 23rd March at New Brighton Pier from 8.00am. 

Party Waves is one of our well known initiatives that is in collaboration with CUBA, The Skate and Surf Society. Party Waves is a way to get outside and socialise with some friends and meet some new ones. So get a group of mates, or encourage your flatties to come out and join because this is one you don’t want to miss! 

Growing up, we often spend a lot more of our time outside and enjoying the ocean. But with life and university getting in the way, we often lose touch of the benefits that the Moana and the outdoors brings to our hauora. Party Waves offers a perfect space to do just this, whilst providing a safe place to socialise, chill and meet new people.

If you're keen for a surf, come hang out or otherwise for an early morning dip as open water swimming is linked to improved wellbeing and positive mood states. Research also shows that ocean water swimming can help reduce negative mood states. So if you feel you need to do something to refill your cup after a full on week at uni, we encourage you to come out, bring some friends and have a swim! 

We will be hanging out for a few hours from 8.00-11.00am and will be set up near the New Brighton Surf Club Car Park. We’ll have a sausage sizzle and Red Bull on offer on Saturday morning.

We look forward to seeing you bright and early :)))
