Surfers Rescue 24/7 is a free Accredited CPR and board rescue course developed by Surfing NSW. It is now being rolled out around Australia after being widely recognised as the best water safety initiative in the past decade. Surfing Tasmania will be launching this program around Tasmania next summer but this is a chance to get in early as part of a test run statewide.It is FREE !

Surfers are on the beach from dawn to 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 have identified board rescue techniques that may prove to be crucial in times of need. Key aspects of the three hour session are: 1. Introduction/discussion re water/surf safety, 2. Dry run throughs on the beach, 3. Water/surf session to try the specific techniques. 4. Getting a patient onto shore/beach, 5. Patient Assessment DRSABCD.
