Merewether SLSC Surf Sports

Fitness is a major part of surf lifesaving and the lifestyle that surrounds it, and Merewether SLSC members are lucky to have one of the best stretches of coast in NSW to train and exercise on. There are numerous options when it comes to getting started in surf sports:

  • Rowing a surf boat
  • Paddling a surf ski or rescue board
  • Beach sprints and flags

Equipment is available in each of the above disciplines for use by financial club members.  Eligible members may also gain access to the club’s fully equipped gymnasium to assist them in strength training for competition and general fitness for lifesaving duties.


The minimum requirements for these carnivals are 25 patrol hours in a calendar year. Patrol hours are calculated on a pro rata basis for members with less than twelve months service.
