Welcome to Whale Beach SLSC

Membership Quick Links:

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 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.

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 a full run-down of awards and upcoming schedule, head to our Training Page.

All are welcome to attend our regular community events. Grab a sanga and beverage each weekend, watch the sunset from our clubhouse deck during our monthly Saturday bar, or enjoy the spit roast at our legendary Neighbours Night! Whale Beach SLSC is also home to the The Big Swim – the oldest and largest ocean swim on the NSW calendar. Check out the calendar for more upcoming events.
