The prime purpose of Yamba Surf Life Saving Club is to patrol Main Beach, keeping it safe for the beach-going public. The club has approximately 10 patrol groups who are rostered for duty on week-ends and public holidays throughout the summer season. The patrol season commences at the start of the September school holidays and finishes on the last weekend in April.

Patrol members must hold certain SLSA lifesaving awards and must requalify at the start of each season by doing their Proficiency test. Each patrol contains a minimum of 4 Bronze medallion holders, an IRB driver and an Advanced Resuscitation Certificate holder. The commitment to patrol duty is to be undertaken seriously by those who are rostered for duty.

 The club Patrol Roster is available for using member login in under the Patrols and Roster button 


Throughout the season Yamba Surf Club conducts various training courses for a number of surf life saving awards.

If you have any enquiries regarding training for awards, please contact the Club’s Chief Training Officer –, or contact the Surf Club Office for further information.
