Why we need sponsorsThe high cost of protecting & saving lives

Surf clubs are high maintenance

We depend on the generosity of our community businesses to assist us in keeping the surf club going.

Costs of running a surf club where does the money go

Where does the money go that is received by sponsors and supporters and is raised through fund-raising? Following is a list of basic equipment our Club needs to provide effective patrols.
