Who We Are
Whale Beach Surf Life Saving Club is home to a small but dedicated team of surf life savers on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, who patrol every weekend and public holiday from October through April.
Our tight-knit community is united through a common love and respect for the ocean. We pride ourselves on excellence in surf safety and education. The diversity of our community is its strength, with our lifesavers, nippers, associate members and wider community working together to keep the beach safe for all.
Everybody is welcome at Whale Beach, a place where you can connect, train hard, and belong.
What We Do
Every weekend we host training and competition for those looking to work on their surf skills and fitness, and run regular training sessions the Bronze Medallion and other SLS awards. For more info head to our Training Page.
