SEE YOU ON THE BEACH!

Welcome

 

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.

Our Mission

 

"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?

Beach Sessions

 

Beach sessions are held on a Friday evening, but can vary between Polurrian and Mullion harbour. Members will be informed of the location for each week in advance of the session.

Pool Sessions

 

Winter training takes place at Helston pool. Members will be informed of the times and days in advance of the pool sessions.

Latest News

Following the COVID restrictions over the last couple of years, we have finally been able to get back to the pool - and now to our Beach Sessions. Each week, we are  at Polurrian and Mullion Harbour, teaching new skills and building their water confidence.  2022 has seen the club train more lifeguards extending our water cover, and in September we will take more young people in from our waiting list.

​Events

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?

Fundraising

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.

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

Remember
  • 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!

 

No Selfies
Don't go too close
Avoid fooded streams

 

Keep practising

 

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.     badwolfhorizon@hotmail.com

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.
