The New Year brings a new opportunity to get involved in the exciting beach event of the summer right here on the North Shore. Having started back on 22 January after a Christmas break, the State Beach Series is back in full swing. Pull on your shorts, your togs, your sense of fun and come have a go!
It’s not too late to enter and get involved with single race passes or discounted multi-passes still available.
Joining the fun and games of the State Beach Series makes a great routine to get into to help you achieve those New Year resolutions of getting fitter & healthier in 2013. Bring some friends or family along to join in – giving you an extra incentive to keep coming back week after week.
This season there are new event offerings including a 2.5km walk, junior & social Stand Up Paddle races along with a wider range of swim distances so there’s no excuse not to join in with one or more of these varying events.

For more information visit or come down to Takapuna Beach between 5-6pm on Tuesdays

Celebrating a decade of King of the Bays!
State King of the Bays, 6 April 2013, Takapuna

This year’s King of the Bays, race 6 of the State New Zealand Ocean Swim Series will be the event’s 10th Anniversary. Whether it’s your first time or 10th time (yes some of our loyal supporters have competed in every event for the past nine years) celebrate with us at New Zealand’s largest swimming event. The same four event distances will be on offer, with something for everyone including the ‘State OceanKids’ 200m swim, the ‘Give It A Go’ 300m, the ‘Step it Up’ 1000m or the original ‘I’m Going Long’ 2.8km swim. So grab your togs and be a part of it as this iconic event hits double figures!
State OceanKids: The Jetstar Super Swim Squad

The fastest swimmers at each State OceanKids event will form the inaugural Jetstar Super Swim Squad and win a once-in-a-lifetime experience – a weekend squad camp in April 2013 with Olympic swimmers including travel and accommodation, special surprises and specialist swim clinics!
The first boy and first girl in each age group at each event will automatically become part of the Jetstar Super Swim Squad and be awarded their entry to the squad at the prizegiving. Each Jetstar Super Swim Squad member will also receive exclusive squad gear and become role models for other young swimmers and their communities.
Come on in, the water’s warm and the atmosphere’s even warmer!
