Orewa is the venue for the first Twilight carnival on the surf sports programme for 2008-09.
The event on Wednesday 12th November is of key importance for surf athletes keen to be selected for the Auckland Lion Foundation Surf League team.
Board, ski and surf races feature on the programme along with beach flags and sprints. Racing for surf boats and surf canoes will also take place.
To give competitors more race opportunities, the organisers are planning to run a second round of board, ski and surf races although this will depend on how long it takes to get through the first round. The carnival briefing is at 5.30 pm with the first event at 6.00pm.
