Fifteenth Local Legends Grant Winners!

Congratulations to our Fifteenth Local Legends Grant Winner – Omanu Beach Surf Lifesaving Club!

The beach is an integral part of so many of our lives here in the bay so it comes with great pride that we can recognize the Omanu Beach Surf Lifesaving Club as our latest Local Legends Grant winners.

Since 1947 the Omanu Beach SLSC have been watching over beachgoers and keeping them safe as they enjoy the waters and surf that span our coastline. Each year thousands flock down to the beach, and Omanu Beach SLSC run an essential service to all those who make waves day in and day out.

But it’s not all about leisure at the beach. The club also run surf sport initiatives, training and developing the next generation of quality lifeguards. Over the summer you’ll find the Junior Surf and Omanu Academy groups racing into the sands as they sharpen their skills and learn how to make the most of the beach. Perhaps they will become the next generation of lifesavers watching over our coast.

To learn more about the Omanu SLSC and all that they do in service of our beautiful coastline you can visit their website here and join in on the events and initiatives happening at the beach.
