Welcome to Newport Surf Lifesaving Club (NSLSC)

First established officially in 1970, Newport Surf Lifesaving Club (NSLSC) was set up to provide training and education in surf lifesaving skills to members of our community. We are a family-friendly club based in Newport, Pembrokeshire with around 80 members. Our aim is to provide a sociable way of getting together to keep fit and have fun in the water, whilst learning valuable new life-skills, including water safety awareness, first aid and resuscitation. We have a small team of volunteers who help to run the club and coach our members.

We welcome new members to all sections of the club starting from 7 years of age with no upper age limit – so there are opportunities for all! The club provides the opportunity to obtain surf lifesaving qualifications at all levels. Many of our members go on to become qualified beach lifeguards for the RNLI, serving on Pembrokeshire beaches, helping to protect local people and visitors to our coastline. We also welcome parents and relatives to join in and help with the running of the club.

To find out how to join us, please visit our MEMBERSHIP page.


Club activities run most weeks throughout the year, with pool training in Fishguard during the winter months and beach / sea activities from May to October at Newport Beach (Traeth Mawr), where our club house is located.

For further details, please visit our ACTIVITIES page.


We are affiliated to the Surf Lifesaving Association of Wales (SLSA) and the Royal Life Saving Society (RLSS) and work closely with RNLI Lifeguards.
Newport Surf Lifesaving Club is a registered charity (No.1059436) run by volunteers and reliant on fundraising, donations and grants to fund the work of the club.
