Mission

Objectives and Aims of Porthmawr Surf Life Saving Club – Our Responsibilities

This list illustrates the components that make up a surf life saving club. If we do not achieve the top most components then we are something else. If we do not train and provide Qualified Lifeguards then we are failing in the primary component but the Beach Lifeguard cannot exist without the support of some or all of the other components. There is room for everyone in a club.
