The Club was first established in 1925 to attract tourists to the area by providing a safe beach for swimmers. Surfers Paradise owes its progress and status - and the safety of its visitors - to earlier generations of benefactors who had a vision (A more detailed record of the Club's history can be found by selecting History under the About the Club menu).

While providing an outstanding model of surf life saving on the busiest and best known beach in Australia, the quality and courage of its members goes beyond personal interest. In 1958 acts of heroism and self sacrifice were displayed when members of the club were catapulted into the limelight when they heroically participated in a shark attack rescue. This resulted in the club receiving the "Meritorious Award for Bravery" from Surf Life Saving Australia and six members receiving Royal Humane Society awards.

Being proficient and having completed the prerequisite number of patrol hours allows the members to compete at all facets of the club's competition calendar. Competition events include surf race, ski, board and iron events, beach flags, sprinting and 2km runs, surf boat rowing, March Past and R&R (rescue and resuscitation), surf rescue competition and surf board/ Malibu board riding. This is from nippers through to masters.
