Surfers Rescue 24/7 presented by Surfing NSW

The Surfing World Camp is partnering with Surfing NSW arm you with the crucial life-saving skills that could be the difference between life and death in the lineup. Surfers Rescue 24/7 is a short instructional and practical beach session teaching surfers some basics in CPR and board rescue. 

Why could this benefit you, your kids and mates? 365 days a year, dawn to dusk, surfers are out on the water and often the first to assist in emergencies. Surfing NSW has been rolling out Surfers Rescue 24/7 as a free program all over NSW. The next stop is the Surfing World Camp at The Farm on the South Coast.

Did you know that a minimal 5% of the extensively populated beaches of NSW patrolled? It is vital for all surfers no matter how old, to know how to perform a rescue outside the flags. Whether you're assisting a surfer out of a rip, helping someone out of the impact zone, rescuing an unconscious swimmer or even administering CPR. It all counts.

As part of the program, Surfing NSW have started an initiative called “Log your Rescue.” It's a digital log available for surfers to input any recent or past rescues. Where were you? What did you do? Did anyone help? How did you know to give a helping hand?

The information collected will assist Surfing NSW to understand the role the surfers play in safe guarding the population in the open ocean environment. For most of us, this is our second home, so let's do everything we can to keep it safe for swimmers and surfers alike.

There is no minimum or maximum action and by logging your rescue you will put you in the running to win monthly cash and other prizes. Just hit this link and complete the survey.
