Surf Sports

At Tacking Point SLSC, we offer a variety of surf sports for members to improve their skills, maintain fitness, be part of a team, and have fun.

Whether it’s swimming squads, board training, ski paddling or surfboat racing, surf sports competition is a healthy and exciting part of being involved with any surf club. It also helps prepare lifesavers for their role on the beach, including enhancing their life saving skills. 



Board training for U9/10s nippers is currently held on Monday’s 5pm (Marine Rescue Shed at Westport Park) and Wednesday’s 5pm (Lighthouse Beach). Please contact Dave Moore on 0400 267 429 for more details.
