Surf Sports

Many surf lifesavers engage in regular competition to maintain their skills and fitness. These competitions, or surf carnivals, are held at club, state, national and international levels. Competitors aged eight to 108 can take part, with all disciplines developed from core lifesaving skills and techniques.

Competition is both fun and fierce, and conducted in the highest standard of sportsmanship, as is befitting of surf lifesavers regarded by many as pillars of the Australian community.

Surf Sports consists of many events or disciplines such swimming, board paddling, surf ski paddling, flags, sprinting, surf boat rowing and the most prestigious of surf events – The Ironman. There is also First Aid, Patrol competition and the Champion Lifesaver that make up our lifesaving events. For more information on the disciplines click here.

Surf Sports begins in the U8s through Nippers with the number and distance of events increasing as they progress through the program until their U14 season is completed. Junior athletes must gain a relevant award every year and pass a competition skills evaluation test in order to compete every season.

Once an athlete has turned 15 and attained their Bronze Medallion Award they can then compete as an Open competitor with many more events available to them including ski and surfboat competition.

So what ever takes your interest, you're sure to find an event that will be as exciting for the spectators as it is for the athletes.
