Developed in 2013, the Mount Monster is New Zealand's most prestigious surf lifesaving endurance race.

Athletes from across the planet gather each December on Mount Maunganui's Main Beach for their chance to race on one of the most spectacular coasts around.

They'll be inspired by the terrain but also challenged by the running, swimming, ski paddling and board paddling, with a few fears tested by the iconic 5m rock jump. Whether competing in a team or as an individual, lifeguards use this event to become fitter, faster and more skilled, as they hunt Mount Monster glory.
