The Surf Club Today

2016/2017 has been our most successful one to date. We have over 200 active members.  

In 2017, the Surf Club offered members a course and upskill in Children’s Safeguarding 1 at two separate occasions; This as a direct result of feedback from all active members of the club over the last year. Our guiding principle for making any and all decisions for Co Sligo Surf Club is that the welfare and safety of our children is the most important factor. This will be our guiding philosophy as we map out the future of the club, over the next few months and years.
