Elouera has 12 patrols all named after our life members. Each patrol will normally be required to perform 10 rostered patrols per season; each between 4 to 5 hours.

Strong patrols are the core of all surf clubs. If you are unable to make your patrol, try to arrange for a substitute and always let your patrol captain know well in advance. Please read Elouera Surf Club’s patrol rules below.

The roster is developed to provide an equal share of Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays as well as afternoon and morning patrols. The roster for 2018 19 is listed below

SKILLS MAINTENANCE (proficiencies)

Dear Members, 

Please see link below to the Skills Maintenance dates for the water component of your proficiency for this season.  All patrolling members , competitors and water safety helpers must be proficient in both the on-line theory modules and the water component.  You must complete your proficiency (on-line and in water)  before 31 December, 2020. 

Your theory component will be run via the member's portal as an on-line module  (covers radios, signals, resus etc) in lieu of doing this land component at the beach.   

Every member needs to have their own Members Portal to receive the e-learning module (if you do not have a Member Portal yet google - "SLSA member portal" and create a "new account") .  

You will need to provide proof of completing this on-line module prior to presenting for your "water" component.  

And just a reminder,  you must be a financial member , complete the Club's Code of Conduct (found on the website) and have a current Working with Children check to perform patrol and water safety duties.  

Any questions, please let me know.
