Polar Bear Surf Classic 2019


The 38th Mammoth Modern Insulation Polar Bear Classic
17th – 18th August 2019

Hey Folks!  It’s that wintery time of year again, dig out your 4/3’s and booties and head over to beautiful Sandy Bay on the Tutukaka Coast to enter/spectate/participate/commemorate one of the country’s longest running surf competitions!
North Coast Boardriders are stoked to partner up with Mammoth Modern Insulation once again to bring you installation number 38 of our epic cold water competition.

The Polar bear classic was first held in 1981 as a fundraiser and an excuse to invite other clubs who could make the trek for a good party in the middle of winter, a fun competition at Sandy Bay on the Tutukaka coast.  Although the surf is unpredictable at this time of the year ,we have had some impressive surf and some even more impressive surfing from the region’s top surfers, with entrants from all over the country.

This year North Coast Boardriders are happy to offer $1000 prize money to both the Open Men’s and Open Women’s division winners for the second year running.  NCB and the wider Tutukaka Coast Community are proud to stand by our Kaupapa of equal prize money.  It is just one step in recognising our top female athletes for their contribution to the sport and paving the way for equal opportunities within the surfing community and the surfing industry.

Divisions for this year are:

Open Men, Open Women’s, Over 40’s, Over 50’s/60’s , Longboard (over 9ft), Under 18 boys, Under 14 boys, Under 16 girls, Under 10’s mixed .
