Sport of Woodchopping and Sawing in Golden Bay.

Woodchopping is an heritage sport and dates back to the 1870’s.

It has been said that Wood chopping is the original ‘extreme sport’.

NZ forests were the breeding ground for some of the country’s most rugged axemen and sawyers. Those pioneering athletes held contests amongst themselves to see who were the best when it came to felling trees and processing logs and those contests form the basis of the sport we know today.

Wood chopping is a thrilling sport to be involved in with a unique combination of athleticism and technique together with power and strength as well as the ever present danger element.
