Bude Surf Life Saving Club

11703383_849703465115629_5095786358925264526_nBude Surf Life Saving Club (SLSC) is the oldest club in Britain having been established in 1953 and is now over 60 years old.  The club has over 100 adult and intermediate members and has well over 150 junior and nipper members.

Active members learn and teach surf life saving techniques, patrol local beaches providing extra safety cover and inform the public about beach safety.  We also take part in SLS competitions from local to international level.

BSLC-AllFor training we use Crooklets beach and the sheltered waters of Summerleaze bay as well as the 90m sea pool on Summerleaze beach.  We also have a 2 mile long canal for surf craft training when the sea is too rough.  Our large club house, situated at Crooklets beach, provides changing facilities, showers and toilets, a meeting room and kitchen as well as a gear store.

Training takes place weekly (please see the website for days and times) and the club facilities are in use year round. There is also a full social calendar.

A wide range of training courses is available through the club for nationally recognised qualifications in Lifeguarding, surf craft competence, IRB driving and first aid.
