all is revealed in book about Warrnambool surf club DAVID Atkinson's life has revolved around the sea for more than five decades, so it's no surprise he fulfilled a dream by publishing a history of Warrnambool Surf Life Saving Club. He called his work The way of the seagull to acknowledge a tradition of using the sea bird symbol on club pennants, equipment and bathing costumes. Although Warrnambool is beside the sea, a formal link was not established until 1919 with an association for surf swimmers one of the first in Australia. The community had pressed for the immediate construction of new dressing sheds and removal of restrictions on mixed bathing. It was at a time when sections of the beach were set aside for "ladies only" and the nearby city baths below the current RSL clubrooms had single gender bathing, with men allowed to swim nude. The surf bathers association wrote to the council asking to make it compulsory for "persons bathing to wear a neck to knee costume at all times". Barely three months after formation of the club more than 1000 people were said to be supporters of sea bathing at a time when Warrnambool's population was only 7300. A visiting official from the Royal Surf Life Saving Society in 1920 described Warrnambool as one of the safest beaches in Victoria, but criticised the sea wall and bathing boxes. He also called for a change in attitude to allow mixed bathing and warned that surfboard riders should be kept apart from swimmers. It wasn't until 10 years later that a group of young enthusiasts gathered support for formation of a separate club to concentrate on life saving and competitions. They formed the Warrnambool Surf Life Saving and Swimming Club on February 20, 1930 with the late clothing entrepreneur Sir Fletcher Jones as inaugural president.

The club's first surf boat was acquired in 1949 for 20 after a "bargain" deal was negotiated during a drinking session with a NSW club. It was to be used later to win many championship races and is now stored at Flagstaff Hill. Atkinson also mentions the huge changes to beach culture when surfboard riding became popular in the 1960s and '70s, luring young swimmers away from traditional surf lifesaving disciples.
