SEE YOU ON THE BEACH!
Welcome, and thank you for visiting Mullion Surf Life Saving Club online. We hope that our website highlights the wide variety of activities, events and opportunities available.
Please feel free to read more about us on this site, or come and visit us on Friday evenings at Poldhu beach. We would love to greet you and share with you our enthusiasm for understanding the sea, having fun and building confidence and competence in the surf.
"To save lives on our local beaches by establishing a culture of surf life saving in Mullion".
We believe that living on a peninsula with such proximity to water all around, whilst being a gift that we are so fortunate to enjoy, comes with it the responsibility to educate the local community in how to enjoy it safely. By partaking in valuable healthy outdoor activities on the beach or in the water, lives can be enriched - and by understanding the power and characteristics of the sea - lives can be saved.
Could this be your ride?
What a comforting sight on the beach to know that there are qualified and specially trained volunteers who are there to help you. Who knows - you could be one of them?
Poldhu Beach 6pm-8pm (possibly from Polurrian next year)
Now finished until May 2020
September - April
Any additional sessions will be announced on our Facebook Page and on our website.
Points to Note
Mullion SLS sessions run throughout the summer and we look forward to seeing you all.
Please remember to arrive on time as unfortunately you cannot join the group if you have not been registered.
If you want to go back into the sea after the session - please note that club coaches are no longer responsible for you and you must have a parent/guardian with you or observing from the shoreline
The winter brings lots of storms and they are exciting to watch. Remember though, don't go too close and watch out for flooded areas and rogue waves!
Don't go too close
Avoid fooded streams
We are delighted that our 2017, 2018 & 2019 beach seasons have been so successful with two sessions per week. Monday Masters was for anyone over 30, whether you are enhancing skills or a complete novice. Our Nippers did really well on our Friday sessions and have really grown in confidence. Unfortunately we are oversubscribed at the moment but why not come and watch what's going on and if you are interested we can add you to our waiting list.
A number of regional and national Surf Life Saving events have taken place over the summer. Mullion SLSC intend to compete at the events although no one is expected to compete if they don't want to. Why not just pop along to any of the events and have a look at what goes on?
Whilst we are mostly concentrating on community grant applications for financial support, we will also be holding some great social fundraising events which we hope you will come and enjoy.
We hope you have enjoyed our beach sessions. The pool sessions resume 30 September. The weather is still nice so you may want to enjoy the beach and play in the sea.
Remember your sea safety -
always tell someone that you are going into the sea
look out for rips - if caught - don't panic but swim along the shoreline left or right to get out of it - don't try to swim against it back to the beach
Remember your hand signals for distress - one arm wave and call for help
stay within the lifeguard flags
check the tides and if rockpooling ensure that you have time to get back to the beach before tide cuts you off.
We invite you to join our mailing list and receive emails we send out with news, or changes to weekly sessions
A Bird's eye view... of Poldhu
We are very grateful to Bad Wolf Horizon for allowing us to use these amazing Drone images of our beautiful beach. firstname.lastname@example.org
The seasons may change but Poldhu is, as ever, beautiful whatever the weather. It was breathtaking and exciting to see Poldhu under a sparkling dusting of snow. For some of our club members, this was the first time they had ever seen snow.
The sun sets casting a radiant glow over this stunning landscape.
