Piha Confirmed For National Champs with Billabong As Major Sponsor  11 – 17 January 2015

“The 2015 Billabong National Surfing Championships have been confirmed for Piha this January with the seven-day event scheduled to take place from the 11th – 17th.  Regarded as New Zealand’s most prestigious surfing event, the competition attracts the best surfers the country has to offer and 2015 will be no different with all of the top Kiwi athletes converging on Piha.In the 52 year history of the event the National Championships has grown to encompass 21 divisions spread across all disciplines and age groups making for a largely inclusive event filled with high level surfing as well as good times in and out of the water.  It is this unique event atmosphere and gathering of the New Zealand surfing community that has attracted new sponsor Billabong to back the event.

“We are stoked to come on board with this iconic event” said Billabong Event Manager Keone Campbell.  “The New Zealand National Championships has a lot of heritage and always boasts the biggest field of the country’s best surfers.  We want to be part of that heritage as well as bring some fresh new activities to the week-long event” added Campbell.”
