Surf Sports

Surf Sports is one of the cornerstones of the Surf Lifesaving movement, allowing competitors to pursue a healthy lifestyle and gain recognition for their sporting efforts at the same time.

Each season Surf Life Saving Queensland’s premier sporting events continue to grow in stature and in competitor numbers. Queensland athletes and clubs have also continued to dominate national and international competition, building the state’s reputation and proving our investment in surf sports is reaping rewards at all levels.

Becoming better lifesavers

The sports aspect of lifesaving allows lifesavers to hone their skills and become better lifesavers.
