The Inaugural Ben Napier Beach Challenge
What a ripper it was – nearly 50 folks participated and there were certainly more laughs than tears as we remembered past Clubbie Ben Napier. The official winner was Charlie Thornton and his name will now go on the amazing trophy made by Warren Thompson. Congrats Charlie and thanks to all those who turned up to support this great event.
2019 SunSmart Country Carnival Photos
Denmark Surf Life Saving Club (DSLSC) played host to over 900 competitors on the Australia Day Long Weekend when the 2019 SunSmart Country Carnival was held at Ocean Beach.
Every year surf life saving clubs from across the State come together at a country location for a weekend program of boat, board, swim and ski racing as well as beach events. This year it was Denmark’s turn to host the highlight of the WA surf sports season.
The annual country carnival is always a highlight of the surf sports season and brings the West Australian Surf Life Saving community together for a weekend of racing and camaraderie.
The last time Denmark hosted this Carnival was in 2014 and hosting it again now was perfect timing due to it being the year of the Club’s 60th Anniversary.

The Carnival was on ABC News and GWN News
WA Surf Club Of The Year 2018
Our Surf Club is one of the 30 clubs on the WA coast, stretching from Broome in the far north to Esperance on the south coast.
Ocean Beach is recognised as one of the more dangerous patrolled beaches in WA and we have a long and proud history of making sure that our beach patrons are well looked after.
While we are committed to ensuring that Ocean Beach remains a safe beach to swim at, there is more to us than just surf lifesaving.

There are many aspects to the club, including patrolling, education programs for our members, a fantastic family atmosphere, competition and a strong development program for our junior members.
Denmark SLSC was formed in November 1958 after a tragic double drowning at Ocean Beach. In the days after the tragedy a town meeting was called and the Denmark Surf Life Saving Club was formed. A small group of young men from the town received training from visiting lifesavers from the City of Perth club, with the first patrol at Ocean Beach commencing on the 14th December 1958. In 2008, the Denmark Club celebrated their 50th anniversary with a weekend of activities to which a fair number of those who were involved in the formative years managed to attend.
The Club now has now grown to have one of the best located clubrooms on the WA coast, much to the envy of many visiting members from other clubs. Our membership totals nearly 300, with around 130 juniors participating in our nipper program. We have four patrol teams rostered on weekends from the first weekend in December until the last weekend in March.
