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
