Run over 4 dates between June-September, this Series is all about participation and encouraging residents to get out on the water or come down to the beach to enjoy Darwin’s beautiful dry season conditions, all under the supervision of our experienced surf lifesavers.

Each event in the series will include a beach/swim competition and a paddle competition on the same day. Participants can choose to compete in either the beach competition, paddle competition or both.
