Since 1910 extraordinary New Zealanders have been volunteering their weekends to patrol New Zealand beaches. Whether patrolling swimming areas or rescuing in heavy surf, every Surf Lifeguard knows the powerful motivation of saving or protecting a life. It's a motivation that marks Surf Life Saving as more than just 'something to do' at the weekend. In it for Life.
Surf Life Saving New Zealand is the national association representing 74 Surf Life Saving Clubs in New Zealand who patrol in over 80 locations throughout the New Zealand summer months.
Surf Life Saving New Zealand is a non-for-profit charity that is protecting our community in the water. A donation to Surf Life Saving will make sure our lifeguards are on patrol with the right equipment to save lives this summer. How you can help.
