Anglesea Silver Salties Beginners Body Surfing Program
Experience a safe introduction to the fabulous feeling of catching a body wave with appropriately trained volunteer surf lifesavers. In this innovative program we teach body surfing from a holistic perspective. Physically, mentally, emotionally and socially, body surfing is a great way to connect to self, other people and the ocean. Maybe it's decades since you last frolicked in the ocean or maybe you've never had that opportunity.
So now's your chance. However, first and foremost, this activity has to be safe for you, so you must be physically and mentally prepared to:
stand and walk unaided in hip depth water with waves challenging your balance for half an hour.
stand up without assistance from an 'all fours' kneeling position in deep water.
A typical session starts with a welcome, introductions, group check in, safety and the session overview by the Surf Life Saving Club leader. We then warm up on the beach and/or in the surf followed by our body surfing skills session. This all usually takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour and is followed by a shower, change of clothes and chat over coffee and cake... because we deserve it!!
The program will run from 10am to 12 midday on January 10, 12 and 14, 2022.
You must be able to attend all three sessions as each builds on the one before and all are important.
To ensure your safety and the opportunity to have one to one instruction, our numbers are strictly limited.
