35 Lifeguards from seven NSW Councils are set for the Lifeguard Surfers Cup happening on 12 April 2019 at Maroubra Beach.

There is no better way to end a successful season for our dear lifeguards than by having a friendly yet fierce surfing competition at the beautiful waters of Maroubra Beach.

The Randwick City Council has partnered with the Surfing NSW to create this inaugural surfing competition that will serve as an opportunity for networking and skills building for all the hardworking lifeguards across seven NSW Councils.

The event allows all competitors to share some of their amazing and exceptional experiences from the busy spring and summer seasons whilst showing off to everyone their great surfing skills.

What to Expect in Lifeguard Surfers Cup?

Participants of the Lifeguard Surfers Cup will consist of teams of five surfers each from Randwick, Waverley, Northern Beaches, Central Coast, Lake Macquarie, and Wollongong Councils.

They will compete in a tag-based format. This means that all surfers must begin on the beach, tag their teammate and paddle out. By having one wave from each of the five surfers will contribute to the team’s overall score.

Aside from claiming bragging rights, winners of the Surfers Cup will receive a brand new jet ski rescue sled given by Pro Guarding.

With a little friendly rivalry going on with some neighbouring lifeguards, this competition surely is going to be an exciting one!
