10 Time West Coast Surf Lifesaving Champions
California State Lifeguard Association Results
Surf Lifesaving sport has been an important component of professional lifeguarding for several decades. The sport was created to encourage lifesavers to develop, maintain, and improve the essential physical and mental skills needed to save lives in the aquatic environment. The sport also presents an incredible opportunity for lifeguards to promote their professionalism, demonstrate their athletic ability, and share a beach safety culture and positive message through sport and fitness. Each race tests basic skills used by lifeguards every day: swimming, running, paddling, ocean knowledge, rescue techniques, spotting/responding to rescues, and teamwork. The sport challenges even the toughest lifeguards to become better athletes and rescuers. Surf Lifesaving competitions in are generally held throughout the Summer months, with the USLA National Championships being the grand finale each August.
