Living by the ocean, it’s important to have a respect and understanding of water safety. One of the best ways to do this is to join the local Surf Life Saving Club. Jono and I have been patrolling the beach at South Curly for almost 20 years now, working a half-day patrol every 5 weeks or so.

We both love the surf club culture and have developed some really close friendships there. It’s such a great place to bring up kids and getting them involved in the Nippers programme, teaching them good surf skills. Eventually many of them will be doing patrols as well in the future.

Both my children’s godparents are surf club people and they have been very significant role models for my kids and family as our community values are very much aligned.

I think Jono & I both have generous natures and feel the real wealth comes from giving back and helping others. Offering our time for patrol services is one of the ways we can contribute.

Our Club

The club believes its most important function is to provide patrols every weekend and public holiday during the surf season. All active senior members provide patrol duty throughout the season on a rotational basis, which usually works out one day per month.

We’re really proud to be a part of the South Curl Curl Surf Life Saving Club, which has been in existence since 1918. It is a testament to the club’s dedication and hard work that no lives have been lost whilst the beach has been patrolled. The Club places great emphasis on training club members in life saving skills to ensure this tradition is maintained.

The South Curl Curl Surf Life Saving Club is a volunteer organisation and its basic objective is to provide the highest possible level of water safety to visitors to South Curl Curl beach throughout the surf season (currently October to April).

Ocean Safety

Last year the network of beach patrol volunteers throughout NSW performed over 5000 rescues around 26000 first aid treatments and 440,000 preventative actions.

The coastline is a beautiful and dynamic place, but please remember it can also be hazardous and unpredictable. Knowing how to stay safe when you visit the beach is essential.

Follow these tips for safety …

1. Always swim between the red and yellow flags – it’s impossible for patrol captains to monitor every part of the water, so please stay where we can keep an eye on you. If there are no flags, you should not swim.

2. Look and take notice of the signs at the beach – these are put in place to alert you to various hazards. Although some of these may be permanent, others are placed each day by the lifeguards to highlight specific hazards, such as rip currents.

3. Ask a lifeguard or lifesaver for safety advice – if you’re not sure about anything at all, ask your lifeguard. We are highly trained and knowledgeable about beach safely and conditions, so talk to us - it’s what we’re here for.

4. Learn how to identify a rip. Joining a SLSC will help to educate you, but again you can ask your lifeguard to help you.

You’re looking for deeper, dark-coloured water with fewer breaking waves and a rippling surface. You might also see foamy, sandy water flowing beyond the waves.

It’s not just tourists and poor swimmers that get caught in rips.

Don’t try to swim against the rip as you will quickly become exhausted. Try to float with the current, while raising an arm for help – or try to swim parallel to the beach to catch some breaking waves to help you back to shore.

5. Swim with a friend so you can look out for each other- never swim or surf alone.

6. If you need help, try to stay calm and attract attention by raising your arm above your head. Conserve your energy by floating until you are rescued.

7. Please never enter the water if you have been drinking alcohol or are under the influence of drugs.

8. Always wear sunscreen – even on a cloudy day. Bring some shade to the beach with you and make sure you and stay hydrated.

9. If you are bodyboarding, please remember to use a leash and wear fins. Lifeguards often rescue bodyboarders who couldn’t kick their way out of rips, because they weren’t wearing fins.

10. If you witness an in-water emergency, alert the surf rescue team on the beach. If you are outside a patrol area, dial Triple Zero (000) – Police.

For information on Beach conditions or to find a patrolled beach near you, you can check out the BeachSafe website or download the mobile app.

Enjoy the beach and stay safe!
