Surf Ski Safety Essentials

Surf Ski Safety Essentials

The key to surf ski safety is understanding:

  • Weather Interpretation

  • Clothing

  • Basic Skills and Strokes

  • Self rescues

  • Safety Equipment - everyday gear you should be carrying - have it accessible and know how to use it

You should also let someone know where you are going and when you are expected back - "Let someone know before you go" and be able to raise the alarm in case of an emergency.

We recommend you gain training from a qualified Paddle Australia instructor.
