The Port Bouvard Surf Lifesaving Club commenced patrol operations at Pyramids Beach in Dawesville on 18 December 2003. Full affiliation was achieved on the 26 May 2007. Since then the Club has gone from strength to strength in all areas.

The Club has increased beach patrol hours consistently each year. Education supports Lifesaving by offering members training in Surf Rescue Certificate, Bronze Medallion and IRB crew and driver.

Woodside Nippers which is the junior surf awareness and beach safety program for children aged 5 to 12 years runs on Sunday mornings from October to March. Youth aged 13 to 19 years are strong and active in our Club. Our surf sports team trains weekly and competes at Little Nipper, Nipper, Senior and Master level in local and state competitions. The Club won AUSSIES Medals in both the Senior and Masters competitions in 2014.

Port Bouvard Surf Lifesaving Club recently embarked upon a significant capital expansion with the addition of a second storey to the clubrooms, adding a large function area with unparalleled views in the Mandurah area, additional training areas for club activities, and amenities.

With funding grants from Federal Government, State Government (Peel Development Commission), City of Mandurah ​and fundraising by the Club, the works were completed in July 2019.
