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.
