Being active is part of the Australian way of life. The Surf Life Saving movement encourages members to be active, to do more and to be more.
Our sport forms a significant component of who we are as an organisation. From Nipper to elite Ironman and Ironwoman, all our members have the opportunity to participate in local, regional, state, national and international surf sports competitions. Unlike other sports, the purpose of competition is to improve lifesaving skills to keep our beaches safe. There are many disciplines to cater for everyone’s interest. From swimming events to board or ski paddling as well as events that don’t even require you to get your toes wet such as beach sprints and beach flags events. Off the beach, surf lifesavers are also required to refine their swimming skills in the pool and participate in pool rescue competitions.
