Surf’s up for beach safety

Ocean Grove SLSC volunteer surf patrols are in operation at Ocean Grove main beach this summer.

Volunteer lifesavers from Ocean Grove Surf Life Saving Club are well into their surf patrol season for the summer at Ocean Grove main beach.
The weekend club volunteer surf patrol will operate each weekend up and until the club surf patrol season wraps up on Sunday 15 April.
Paid lifeguards are patrolling at Ocean Grove main beach until Friday 9 February during weekdays across the summer, except on public holidays where volunteer patrols will be in use.
Ocean Grove SLSC Club Captain Lewis Howell-Pavia said it had been a relatively incident free start to its new surf patrol season this summer.
“Patrols have been doing an excellent job – there have been plenty of preventative actions demonstrated by the patrols so far this summer,” Howell-Pavia said.
“We have had good turnouts at the beach and we are looking forward to a great summer ahead.”
