Wave of the Year – and it was only the 3rd of January 2023!

Witnessed by David C, Mick S and Noel B who watched Steve pick up an absolute bomb, way out the back, on an already reasonably large day.

LOL)

Not ready to become part of Coolum Surf Club but still want to help?

It takes a lot of money to run a surf lifesaving club; from the equipment needed on the beach (vehicles, boards, IRBs, first aid kits, defibrillators etc) to administration and training to facilitate patrolling.

So if you can't join us, support us through one of the following options.
