The current club house is 50 years old. Being on the wild West Coast has taken it's toll on the building, it has become unsafe and unsuitable for effective use.
Over the past 10 years Surf Life Saving Kariaotahi has embarked on a project to design and eventually build a fit for purpose Lifesaving & Training Facility as new home for the club. This new facility has been designed with spacial consideration for community groups to use alongside surf life saving operations.
Events, training and search & rescue operations will also operate out of the new building throughout the year for the local and wider community.
Surf Life Saving Kariaotahi has a membership of 50+ Junior Surf members (aged 5 to 13) and a further 60+ Surf Lifeguards and Patrol Support members (aged 14+). This life saving membership performs over 20 rescues a year, assisting more that 50 people to safety, 30+ First Aids, 10+ searches with a further 1500+ proactive preventative actions involving 6000+ members of the community.
With no club house, this wild part of the coastline will go unsupported by our essential public service.
