Welcome to Riversdale Beach Surf Lifesaving Club

Welcome to the Riversdale Beach Surf Lifesaving Club (RBSLSC).  Since 1955 the RBSLSC has protected the lives of the community proudly patrolling one of the most popular Wairarapa beaches.

We are looking forward to a busy and sun-filled summer.  We have been busy preparing our lifeguards for the season and have an action packed few months ahead.  You’ll find all the details on our website.
