Welcome to Taylors Mistake Surf Life Saving Club

Every year, thousands of people visit Taylors Mistake, one of Christchurch’s most beautiful beaches. They are kept safe by the volunteer service that the Club provides.

The Club has some of the region’s most qualified and experienced lifeguards who patrol the beach on weekends and public holidays from November to March. We are a vibrant and family focused club with many of our members also fully engaged in the competitive aspect of surf life saving, competing in local and national competitions. We have a proud history of success and offer weekly training sessions and coaching to assist athletes of all ages. We run a strong junior surf programme as well as a rookie lifeguard programme to nurture the development of our future lifeguards. The Club also provides a range of family friendly events to encourage social connection and engagement with the local community.
