Northlanders enjoyed a healthy dose of sun and sport during the weekend with swimming champs and one of Northland's biggest surfing competitions on in the region.

Eighty surfers competed at The Summer Sessions at Ocean Beach on Saturday - one of the largest turnouts to what is touted as one of Northland's biggest surfing competitions.

The Northland Age Group swimming Championships was also held in the weekend, kicking off on Friday at 4pm and finishing up on Sunday.

Photographer John Stone headed to both events to capture punters enjoying the action.
