Surf Sports & Carnivals

Many surf lifesavers engage in regular competition to maintain their skills and fitness. These competitions, or surf carnivals, are held at club, regional, state, national and international levels.

Competitors aged eight to 108 can take part, with all disciplines developed from core lifesaving skills and techniques. Competition is both fun and fierce, and conducted in the highest standard of sportsmanship, as is befitting of surf lifesavers regarded by many as pillars of the Australian community.

All competitors and their clubs agree to compete according to the Surf Sports Code of Conduct as set out on Section 2-26 of the 33rd Edition of the SLSA Surf Sports Manual. Please go to the SLSA website to download the Surf Sports Code of Conduct.
