Kiama Surf Lifesaving Club has capped a highly successful year after being named South Coast Branch Club of the Year for the first time in the branch’s 25 year history.
Kiama Surf Club has undergone a huge transformation over the past few years.

The club has also increased the equipment necessary, from IRB's, rescue paddle boards, training boards, has first class training facilties for both senior and junior members, and having the a radio room which co-ordinates all surf club radio traffic for all surf clubs from Warilla down to the Victorian border - a mammoth task.
