Club Overview

The Karekare Surf Life Saving Patrol maintains an active patrol at the beach in the weekends and on public holidays from Labour Weekend to Easter each year. During this season, Lifeguards provide a voluntary service that is mainly preventative in nature, encouraging beach users to swim in the safer regions of the beach (i.e., between the flags). However, lifeguards also respond to a wide variety of emergency situations.
The duties lifeguards at Karekare perform include: providing a patrolled area for swimmers, preventing people from getting into trouble by educating them about the surf and its dangers, rescuing fisherman, surfers and swimmers who get into difficulties, searching for missing persons and administering first aid and advanced emergency care, attending after hours call-outs, and protecting the shellfish beds. TheKKSLSP also runs a Junior Surf Programme for children aged from 7 to 14 years. In this programme children learn basic lifeguarding skills in a safe and fun environment.
