Keeping people safe in and around Otaki Beach since 1953!

Surf lifesaving represents the pinnacle of community service and athletic endeavour.  For nearly 65 years, Otaki Surf Lifesaving Club has provided service to the residents of, and visitors to, Otaki.  Through the preservation of life, the maintenance of a fit, healthy membership, and community involvement, Otaki Surf Lifesaving Club has forged a dependable reputation for being there when people need us. Learn more about us ...

Surf lifeguards are skilled, fit individuals aged 14 years or older. Once you qualify as a lifeguard, the doors to summer weekend patrols, surf competitions and additional skills development are open!

If you're interested in seeing your child develop fitness, confidence in the water and the skills to keep themselves safe at the beach then the Junior Surf programme is the way to go. Anyone can join! 

Surf Sport was created to ensure lifeguards are at their physical best whilst honing their already expansive lifesaving skills.   

We are a volunteer organisation and rely on the community we protect to support us. Find out how you can help support us.


Otaki Surf Lifesaving Club warmly welcome new members and have a range of membership options available. Join us today and become part of our happy family.

We really do have an enormous amount of fun together! We've camped overnight on Kapiti Island, holidayed in Mahia, entered the Tough Guy Girl Challenge a few years in a row, battled Worser Bay to retain the Wortaki Shield and so much more.....
