About our Club
Whilst being affiliated with Surf Life Saving Australia and SLS NSW, we are also an active member of Surf Life Saving Far South Coast Branch. Nippers or Junior activities are conducted at the beach each Sunday morning from 9.00 am from November through until Easter.
Having been established since 1932, the Moruya Surf Life Saving Club has a long and proud history.
The Club is located at Moruya Beach in Charles Moffit Drive, Moruya Heads. While our immediate patrol responsibilities are focused on the beach adjacent the Club, roving patrols are also dispatched to Shelly Beach at the mouth of the Moruya River and south along Moruya beach to Pedro Point.
Whilst being affiliated with Surf Life Saving Australian and NSW, we are also an active member of the Far South Coast Branch. Along with other clubs in the Branch, our patrol season and competition season commences with the September/October school holidays. Patrols and competition usually conclude late in April around Anzac Day.
Although the beaches are patrolled in the months leading up to Christmas, the water can be quite cool, with warmer currents not arriving until Christmas. Regardless of water temperature, our members will be there to provide a safe swimming environment for locals and visitors.
Surf Life Saving is not just about fit young people running into the surf, it's about community members caring for the safety of others. For this reason any member of the community can make a valuable contribution through patrolling the beach, education and administration. Our current patrolling members range from elite athletes in their teens to senior members in their 70's - all making a valuable contribution.
Education of our Junior and Senior members includes learning valuable surfing and swimming skills through to vital life saving and resuscitation skills. These disciplines are sought after by many employers who recognise the application and dedication of the movement and actively seek employees with these skills.
Nippers or Junior activities are conducted at the beach each Sunday morning from 9.00 am from November through until Easter. Children and interested parents are given the opportunity to learn skills associated with reading and enjoying surf activities whilst also being introduced to life saving techniques.
In addition to patrolling the beach, an active team of members also compete in local and national competition.
Recently our Vikings Surf Boat Ladies and Mens crews were both awarded first place in the gruelling George Bass Surf Boat Marathon.
