Dear Surfing Doctors, Allied Health Professionals, lifeguards, surf instructors and surfers,

The European Association of Surfing Doctors is proud to look back with you at an amazing year full of Surfing Medicine in 2013!

In Sagres last October, medical professionals from all over the world gathered to discuss medical conditions linked to surfing. For us, this was a milestone in the improvement of the health and safety of the surfer in the future, and there is still a lot to be done, where cooperation with other international organisations will be key to improving healthcare and water safety.

Last year we organised two accredited events: our first Advanced Surfing Medicine Life Support (ASLS) course combining hands aquatic life saving skills with hardcore medical knowledge, and a splashing 2nd Annual Conference in Surfing Medicine of which you see the magic outcome in the picture attached.
We want to thank everyone for their enthusiasm and the contribution everyone has made, enjoy the EASD flashback!
