What are we all about and meet the committee and officer team below.
Sumner Surf Life Saving Club was founded in 1911 and was the second Surf Life Saving Club formed in Canterbury. The sole purpose of the Club is to prevent death by drowning while swimming in the sea. Sumner SLSC provides a community service in the form of surf patrols that keep a watchful eye over those in the water. These patrols are made up of trained volunteers. Sumner SLSC patrols from November to the end of March.
Sumner is located 10 km southeast of Christchurch city. To the west the beach is bound by the Avon and Heathcote Rivermouth, and to the east is the headland of Cave rock, which separates Sumner from Scarborough beach. Both Sumner and Scarborough beaches have golden sand and are about 400m and 1000m long respectively.
Sumner Surf Life Saving Club is located at the midpoint of Sumner beach. A small rocky outcrop to the west exposes a further 400 meters of beach at low tide. Sumner beach is backed by residential homes, motels, cafes and restaurants.
