Event Manager Monique Hartman states “We are so excited to bring such a rich program to our local surf club where people of all ages and backgrounds can come together with a common interest, celebrating life in a beautiful coastal region, and sharing stories that highlight why and how we can protect our waters for the greater good”.

The club is aiming to raise much needed funds for resources as well as to drive memberships and encourage the new generation of Lifeguards, so they can continue to keep our community safe and connected through their activities.

NESLSC President Peter Cooper said “Our Club is very excited to host Coast Life, as we believe it is a unique Central Coast event, enabling the whole community to work together, break down barriers and achieve positive results through cultural and environmental awareness”.

Thanks to Central Coast Council, NESLSC is having a water refill station installed to encourage the reduction of single use plastic water bottles throughout the Central Coast.

There will be a small entry fee of $10, which will contribute to the fundraising goal.
