Surfers Rescue 24/7 Concept

Surfing NSW with support of the NSW Government are giving all surfers in NSW the opportunity to do a free CPR and Board Rescue Course - "Surfers Rescue 24/7".

The short and to the point course will educate and provide a skill set, that hopefully you will never have to use, but if found in a tough situation, may just save a life.

Surfing has been part of the Australian society since the late 50's and during this time, recreational surfers from all walks of life have been instrumental in helping to keep our beaches safe. These boardriders have conducted and assisted in thousands of rescues, the majority of which go unheralded.

Be it a patrolled or unpatrolled beach across NSW, all recreational Surfers are on the beach from dawn until dusk, 365 days a year. A lot of them are responsible for hundreds of thousands of unsung rescues. In conjunction with pro-surfers who are currently working as lifeguards, Surfing NSW identified board rescue techniques that may prove to be crucial in times of need.

Overall Surfing NSW will be rolling out the free course for all surfers educating on certain situations, which could benefit themselves, family, friends and fellow surfers throughout their lifetime.
