In 2004, the Salt Surf Life Saving Club was founded and joined the other 9 clubs that make up the Far North Coast branch of Surf Life Saving NSW. At the time, Salt was the first new surf club to form in Australia for many years.
The club is located in the heart of the Salt Village hotel and residential development, and is a jewel in the Salt Village crown. Formation of the surf club was part of the conditions placed on visionary developers Brian and Kathy Ray in order to gain approval to construct the large scale Salt Village development. Despite some initial concern from other parties, the club was born through the hard work and dedication of Brian and Kathy. Tragically, both Brian and Kathy were killed in a plane crash prior to the first patrol taking the beach.
Their legacy to the surf club has been carried by their children and the band of original members who still drive the continued progress of the club to this day.
After many years of planning, fundraising and preparation, the construction of the new clubhouse started on Monday 16th November 2015.
