EVES is proud to announce our exciting new sponsorship of the Waterbourne Charitable Trust, who are bringing their premier beach festival to Mount Maunganui in March 2022. The Waterbourne Beach Festival is a water sports event spanning three days featuring food stalls, international musicians, sandcastle competitions and beach clean ups run by volunteers. Ensuring the beach is preserved for generations to come is a core pillar at the heart of the Waterbourne Charitable Trust. 


In addition to beach volleyball, wing foiling and ninja games, there will be the EVES NZ Stand Up Paddle Boarding National Championships. The Mount has become home to paddle boarding in New Zealand, providing awesome conditions for both competitive and social paddle boarding. The competition isn’t restricted to the pro’s though, with a range of divisions available so that the public can get involved. There is also free equipment available for youth to compete, making this the ultimate family friendly festival in the Bay.


EVES Real Estate has a long history of community support, firmly believing in giving back to and supporting the local community. Event organiser Laurence Carey says “to have EVES onboard with the same vision as the Waterbourne Charitable Trust is great! They understand the importance of being sustainable whilst providing everlasting experiences for the community.”


Partnering with the Waterbourne Charitable Trust means that we are able to provide our community with more opportunities to enjoy the beach. The EVES Paddle Boarding Nationals alone is expected to attract more than 150 athletes from around New Zealand, alongside athletes from Australia, USA and French Polynesia, with 10,000 attendees also confirmed for the international musicians, which will make the festival a huge benefit to our local economy.


The festival will run from March 4-th-6th 2022, and tickets are now on sale. For more information, visit www.waterbourne.co.nz
