Lea Hill – ashes scattering – Sunday 14 Nov 2021 at 11am

Members will remember that Lea Hill passed away earlier this year, but we were unable to hold the paddle out and ashes scattering.  This is now planned for Sunday 14 November, forming up at the south end near the Icebergs around 10:45am with boards, and with the ceremony at 11am. For those who wish to pay […]

Lyster Ormsby commissioned the

Lyster Ormsby commissioned the production of the R&R (Rescue and Resuscitation) Reel that was first used at Bondi on 23 December 1906.

Within one year of Bondi Surf Club’s formation in Feb 1907, members were travelling to other beaches to compete and demonstrate, with the other new clubs that were emerging.

Watching the R&R (Rescue and Resuscitation) demonstrations was quite the spectacle at these events.

Practiced in the Bronze Medallion training right up until the 1980s, R&R is still a highly prestigious and competitive event at surf carnivals.

The belt swimmer attached with a rope swims out to rescue the patient, before being pulled back to shore. The rest of the team collect the patient, carrying them with precision back to the sand before demonstrating perfect resuscitation.

Bondi Surf Club celebrates Lyster Ormsby’s lifesaving invention with a patrol named after him.

You won’t patrol every week! W

You won’t patrol every week! When you become a Bondi Surf Lifesaver you join a group called a patrol. There are 14 patrols that rotate on Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays, so you will therefore be rostered on every 3 to 4 weeks for between 4 and 6 hours, from September to April.

In between your patrols you may choose to join a swim or board training squad. You could join our gym or meet your club mates for a casual swim, work out or board paddle. You will have access to changing rooms and showers at the club. There is also a Sunday social session called ‘Bottles’ where we catch up and get to meet other patrol members.

A crucial part of the role of

A crucial part of the role of a Bondi Lifesaver is crowd management and preventing swimmers from getting into danger, and avoiding the need for them to be rescued in the first place. Prevention is key to our motto ‘No Lives Lost’!

In the Bronze course you are taught to understand surf safety and how to identify rips. You are also taught signals and to use a radio to communicate with other Lifesavers and organisations on the beach.

Both of our October Bronze Medallion courses are now full! The next 2 courses start in January.
