About Surfers Rescue 24/7 + CPR Course

Surfers Rescue 24/7 is a surfboard rescue and accredited CPR course for NSW recreational surfers. The award-winning course teaches critical board rescue techniques that can be used to assist in an emergency situation and could ultimately save a life! These simple yet proven rescue techniques have been designed and endorsed by NSW Professional Lifeguards, The Australian Lifeguards Service (ALS), Surf Life Saving NSW (SLSNSW), and some of the world’s most elite surfers.

With only 4% percent of all Australian beaches patrolled by professional and volunteer lifeguards, surfers are our biggest asset when saving lives and the techniques taught have been proven to save lives using the readymade rescue tools already on hand……your surfboard!

We are encouraging recreational surfers of all skill levels to do the Surfers Rescue 24/7 course to learn these techniques, as well as be trained in CPR.
With less than 10% of all Australian’s being trained in CPR, these skills can be used anywhere to help save lives!

The Surfers Rescue 24/7 course consists of 2 x components:
Surfers Rescue 24/7 Course, learning basic rescue techniques using the equipment surfers already have on hand (their surf craft) – approx. 1.5 hours.
CPR Course – approx. 2 hours.
