Members of the Surf Life Saving movement are more than just members of a club – they are part of their communities, guardians of their beaches, and guardians of the lives of those that wish to enjoy a day at one of our beautiful beaches. They are the young, and the young at heart, club legends and club secretaries, athletes and administrators.
