Why join Omanu Beach SLSC?

Join the Zespri 2017 Bay of Plenty Club of the Year


Omanu Beach is a pristine strip of white sand attracting thousands of beach users. As our core purpose is lifeguarding, we offer a number of opportunities to upskill and educate our volunteer lifeguards. The first aid and emergency care qualifications gained at our club provide valuable life experience. Our lifeguards range in age from 14 to 80+. All ages work together in teams bringing many years of experience to keep our beach safe.

Omanu Beach SLSC pride ourselves on being a family Club. We have the largest Junior Surf membership in New Zealand. Our Junior Surf programme provides children aged 5-13 years with lifelong skills to swim safely at the beach as well as developing future lifeguards. Once parents witness the dedication of Omanu Beach, many are motivated to become lifeguards. Generations know the heart of Omanu Beach SLSC.

Surf Sport competition adds another element of interest and challenge for our members and we are regularly the New Zealand Under 14 and the Master’s Champions -proof of family commitment.
