Training and Education


  • Do you want to learn some surf skills ?
  • Do you want to gain some fitness ?
  • Are you new to the area and looking for a way to meet people in an idyllic (and iconic) outdoor setting ?


Kiama Downs Surf Club is holding an information / registration seminar for the Bronze Medallion and SRC courses this Sunday (21 October) at 11am at the clubhouse (after Nippers).

You don’t need to be a “super athlete” to gain the invaluable skills imparted during the course. Our qualified instructors have experience in surf education and can develop candidates over the duration of the course.

The course is $80 for members and $120 for non members.

It will be run over approximately 6 weeks commencing Sunday 28 October.

Candidates need to be a minimum of 13 years old for the SRC and 15 years old for the Bronze.

While the course is aimed at imparting the skills and knowledge necessary to carry out surf life saving activities, it is NOT an expectation that candidates sign up for Surf Patrols at the end of the course. Surf Life Saving is about saving lives, and if we can teach you the skills to keep yourself and your family safe then we have gone a long way towards achieving our goals.

We already have a number of “mums and dads” signed up for the Bronze course, and there is a very healthy number of 13-15 year olds expressing interest in the SRC course – but there is always room for more.

 If you are interested then come along to the session this Sunday.
