Every season the Club provides an essential service of voluntary lifeguard patrols at Ocean Beach, Hawke's Bay.
We need support from the community to ensure we continue this essential service.
Last season we provided over 1,320 hours of voluntary patrol. During the time the Club was patrolling our members were involved in 2 Rescues, 12 First Aid incidents, 1 Search, and over 480 preventative actions involving around 600 people.
The Club currently has the largest number of active lifeguards in the Hawke's Bay region, and we consider it essential that these members are provided with opportunities to develop their skills and enhance their interest in surf life saving.
Your support is needed to help maintain the club, cover operational expenses (water, power etc) and purchase the life saving equipment we need.
The equipment we need includes:
- Junior surf boogie boards $25 each
- Rescue tubes $115
- Rescue fins $50
- Junior surf soft foam boards $1,000 each
- Paddle Board $1,800
- Ski $2,600
- IRB $18,000
