The surf rescue training will be incredibly fun but also physically quite demanding. So, you need to be in shape before the start of the course. The fitter you are, the more fun you will have while learning the rescue skills and saving people in the scenarios. You must be able to meet the following criteria to attend the course:

  • Visible confidence in unbroken and broken waves, with and without a floating device, i.e. surfboard
  • Paddling 100 meters in 1 minute on a surfboard
  • Swimming 50 meters in 1 minute
  • Continuously swimming for 30 minutes at a moderate speed
  • Threading water for 30 minutes continuously

Participation in the course mandatory includes sufficient water fitness (see above) and showing confidence in the ocean and waves, both of which will be continuously assessed throughout the course to ensure your personal safety and make sure you meet the course’s criteria. For the exact physical requirements please see the course’s Terms & Conditions. If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us:

If you can already answer all the above points with ‘Yes’, you are already in a great shape and physically ready for the course. If not, don’t worry: there is still plenty of time to get in shape.
