The Club was formed by Archie McLean, Allen McLean and Norman Cox, all were former members of North Narrabeen SLSC.
There were surf sheds at Devitt St, Narrabeen and after initial deliberations, this was ruled out as a potential Clubhouse for the newly formed Surf Club. A Committee was formed under the leadership of E Cox and the Progress Association was approached for assistance. Mr Ike Larkin, President of the Association assisted with the development of the Club. Some land with a small hall was donated to the Club. The hall was sold and a new Clubhouse erected. Patrols commenced in 1922.
South Narrabeen Surf Life Saving Club was officially opened at 3pm on the 15th of December, 1923.
The initial decision to name the Club Narrabeen was rejected in favour of South Narrabeen.
