Surfers are in the water dawn until dusk, 365 days a year and are often first to respond and assist in emergencies. With select Victorian beaches only patrolled seasonally, surfers and recreational water users can be utilised to assist outside the flagged beaches. Our beaches are one of our biggest assets and we all need to do what we can to make them safe. We’re encouraging surfers and recreational water users of all skill levels to go to the “Events” page on www.surfingvic.com and register for a course. Additonally, if you’re involved in a rescue go to Surfers Rescue 24/7 Rescue Log and tell us the details, and you’ll have the opportunity to go into the draw to win some great prizes.
Surfing Victoria and our partners, including the Victorian Government, have identified board rescue techniques that may prove to be crucial in emergency situations. This course is FREE and tailored to surfers and recreational water users who could use their surfboard or boards as a rescue tool.
