Every Australian can help save a life. On the sand and in the surf, people just like you step up to the challenge to become lifesavers; to own the coast and love the coast.

Becoming a surf lifesaver is the epitome of a fit and healthy lifestyle. It’s joining a community, making new mates and giving something back to your local community. It’s being your best self. It’s learning and teaching in a supportive environment. Whether it’s patrolling, surf sport comps or training the next generation, our members agree it’s nothing short of rewarding.

Lifesaving is life changing…

See yourself donning the red and yellow? To become a surf lifesaver you’ll need to: 

  • Join your local Surf Life Saving Club.
  • Obtain your Bronze Medallion.

As a surf lifesaver, you’ll learn valuable skills working as a trained volunteer. This means patrolling WA beaches on weekends and public holidays during the surf lifesaving season. You’ll undertake a number of roles, including aquatic rescues, providing first aid and emergency care and providing surf safety information to the public.

Furthermore, Bronze Medallion holding members become eligible to compete in surf sports events, upon meeting patrol requirements.
