Join Marine

Marine Surf Lifesaving Club (founded in 1963) is situated on Durban’s Addington Beach with prime clubhouse position on the new promenade, approximately 300m North of uShaka Marine Waterpark and 700m South of Addington Hospital.

The core function of Marine SLC is the provision of a voluntary week end and public holiday lifeguard service to Addington Beach. Our current 1000 strong club membership is made up of five main sections namely, Lifesaving, Lifesaving Nippers, Surf Ski Paddling, Surfing, SUP and Open Water Swimming.

A very important and fast-growing section of our club is Nippers lifesaving which caters for children between the ages of 8yr – 14yr and regarded as the nursery for future lifeguards. Nippers is a fantastic health and fitness-based activity for young children which allows them to the opportunity to have weekly “fun in the sun “while learning about the beach, ocean safety, the surf and basic lifesaving skills.


Fill out the Membership Form, pay the season’s fees and supply the Club with a copy of your Birth Certificate or ID. The season runs from September until April and fees are due by the end of October every year. All new Nippers need to attend either and open day or a trial day before registering with Marine SLC.
