Somerton Surf Life Saving Club was founded in 1960 and, from humble beginnings, has grown to become the largest surf club in South Australia. We welcome all new members.

Somerton SLSC has a proud and successful history in both life saving and competition. Our success is built upon strong family foundations, where each member can find something to interest them, regardless of age or ability, as well as enabling participation in a wide range of services to the club and the community.

The primary focus of our club is to deliver surf life saving services to ensure the safety of the swimming and surfing public. Our patrols boast the proud record of “no lives lost between the flags” while on patrol. Somerton Surf Life Saving Club is responsible for patrolling the beach between King Street, Brighton to the south and The Broadway, Glenelg to the North, on weekend and public holiday afternoons between October and April each year.

“Nippers” sessions are conducted at the beach each Saturday from 1.30pm to 4.00pm.
