What Surf Sports is all about
Strength and humanity, passion and commitment, turning the ordinary into the extraordinary.
Junior Surf members, as young as seven get to enjoy the fun and excitement of pitting themselves against each other.
Surf Sports offer a prime training ground for the physical and psychological demands of saving lives in the surf.
Regardless of ability or interest, events range from club based competitions to District and National Championships.
Events span the range of rescue skills and test competitors’ strength, fitness and agility in swimming, running, paddling a surf ski, board or canoe or rowing a surf boat.
