Craft Use

Full active members are welcome to take out training surf craft (rescue boards and surf skis) when they have achieved their SLSGB level 2 award for competence in using the appropriate craft. The craft awards depend on successful prior completion of a level 2 surf swim award and all awards can be gained by attending training sessions. Dates for adult training will be set early in the new year; juniors will complete the awards as part of their training

The level 2 craft awards last your lifetime whereas the surf swim must be renewed every two years.

All junior club members aged 15 and over who hold the level 2 board award can take out training boards as long as an adult club member who holds the NaRS Lifeguard qualification has okayed it (conditions suitable etc.).

This adult member does not need to be on the beach but their name must be recorded on the whiteboard. Juniors with a level 2 ski award may use skis when supervised by a club ski supervisor.

Please take out only the designated training craft and sign in and out when you use craft. Competition craft is reserved for specific training purposes and should only be used under pre-agreed circumstances as this equipment needs to be kept in top condition for competition.

Damage can lead to ingress of water, reducing the performance of the craft. We realise accidents happen but it is important that equipment is maintained for all to enjoy so please report any damage.
