Studies suggest that spending time near the ocean is good for the mind, body and soul. No wonder, tourists and non-tourists gathers around during summer vacations to swim, sail and conduct various water sports events in the open water. In addition, those who live near the ocean have better health than those who live in central cities and the reason for such are often unexplainable. It’s the magic of the sea, perhaps.
However, as we all know, no one is safe in the water. It possesses a threat to anyone and anytime, it can be as unpredictable as the weather. And the danger it holds is countless which is why it is vital to have someone who is knowledgeable enough in lifesaving and prevention of beach accidents to patrol the sea and its surrounding areas.
Those who sail on the sea and conducts different kinds of water activities faces different kinds of threats and no one can help them immediately if an accident happens. For this reason, Southbourne Surf Life Saving Club volunteer members commit their time to watch and guard the coast for the safety and benefit of every swimmers and tourist in Southbourne using their fully functional surf equipment and rescue vehicles. They patrol the sea during weekends and bank holidays from May to October where a massive number of vacationers congregate in the beach to have fun.

You have the capability to change a moment and save a life just by learning valuable lifesaving skills. During the training, the club incorporates fun with seriousness on all of their conducted activities to inspire and motivate the members of SSLSC.
