Welcome to the web site of

Tintagel Surf Life Saving Club.

We are a small club in North Cornwall with our members coming from the area of Tintagel, Delabole, Camelford, Boscastle and St Teath.
The club is a registered charity and run by a band of dedicated volunteers, led by our club chairman, Les Freke, who has been involved in surf life saving since the early seventies, being a Beach lifeguard, Instructor, and Examiner within the Cornish region.

Where are we?

The club is located a couple of miles to the south of Tintagel at Trebarwith Strand which is the local surfing beach.
As you look through the website, you can see that Tintagel has a small stony beach beneath the Castle Island, unsuitable for surfing.
Trebarwith Strand is well known to surfers and holiday makers, and has been patrolled by our club and the Lifeguards for many years

Club Meetings

We are back on the beach for the 2010 season, see below.

If any parents would like to join in on the beach next year and help with the Nipper meetings on Friday evenings, or the Junior meetings on Sunday mornings, please let us know - it would be great to have more adults involved with the club - and we have a lot of fun, you will enjoy it. You could even learn some cool things!


Check out the local Surf with Magic Seaweed
Although the forecast is for Constantine/Polzeath, the surf
conditions are pretty similar to Trebarwith Strand.
