Surf Sports are a fun way for our lifesavers to develop the skills they use on the beach and in the water to save lives.
From First Aid to Ironman there is a surf sport to suit every age and ability.

At Wauchope Bonny Hills we aim to encourage all our members to participate in surf sports and we have several surf boat teams , ski paddlers and board and swim competitors .We also have a strong tradition in the March Past and R and R events.

Over the years our athletes have competed at Branch, State , National and even World level.



Our club has a well equipped gym which is available to active members when the club is open.

Members are requested to pre-book a spot in the gym by using our booking link
