With summer around the corner the south coast’s two premier surf lifesaving clubs are calling for members ahead of a busy time of beach going.
Denmark Surf Lifesaving Club has held its registration day, while Albany Surf Lifesaving Club will holds its registration day this weekend as part of an annual membership drive and to share water-safety knowledge and skills with beach-goers.
Denmark club’s publicity officer Patrick McCarthy said joining a surf club was as much about having fun as anything.
“This summer more than ever we want to stress that if you want to hang at the beach and learn all the skills required, the surf club is the best and safest way to do it,” he said. “And of course, it’s fun.”
Denmark Surf Lifesaving Club held its registration day on Sunday at its Ocean Beach clubrooms.
Albany Surf Lifesaving Club is holding registration this Saturday, October 27 from 9am to noon on the grassed area beside its Middleton Beach facility.
Club president Rob Lucas recently hosted bronze medallion requalification, and said the club sought members for beach patrols and competition.
