St Ives Surf Life Saving Club

St Ives Surf Life Saving Club was originally formed in 1958 and, as well as competing in National Surf Life Saving Competitions, provided Lifeguard cover on Porthmeor Beach. The club has evolved over the years, but it has never lost its strong links with the local community.

St Ives Surf Life Saving Club is a member of Surf Life Saving Cornwall and the Surf Life Saving Association of Great Britain (SLSGB), Britain’s National Governing Body for Beach Lifeguarding and the sport of Surf Life Saving. St Ives Surf Life Saving Club operates as a charitable organisation from a club house on the west side of Porthmeor Beach and is run by a dedicated team of volunteers. They are a friendly club and actively encourage people from all walks of life to “have a go” and get involved – whether you are 7 years old or 70 years old a warm welcome awaits you!

Every year the club hosts the St Ives Biathlon. This is the club’s biggest fundraiser, in previous years funds went towards building their new clubhouse above the public toilets on Porthmeor Beach.

During the summer the club trains from its Clubhouse located on the west side of Porthmeor Beach please contact St Ives Surf Life Saving Club directly for more information.
