PATROLWe provide a safe beach environment at Ocean Grove Main
WE PROTECT THE BEACH + COMMUNITY
Patrol dates 2023/24: 11 November 2023 to 25 April 2024
The primary function of the Ocean Grove Surf Life Saving Club is to provide a safe beach environment for swimmers, surfers and beach goers at Ocean Grove. The Club has provided a continuous patrolled presence since 1953.
During the summer months and particularly on weekends and public holidays, Ocean Grove hosts some of the largest surf beach crowds in Victoria. Although a relatively safe beach, due to its gently sloping sand, large crowds and varied sea conditions can provide many challenges to our beach patrols.
Nearby, the Barwon river mouth is notorious for the dangerous conditions it can produce for the sometimes heavy traffic of boats leaving the Barwon estuary and heading out to sea. It is not uncommon for club members, during patrol and non-patrol periods, to be called on to assist boats in distress.
