From the traditional surf boats, R and R and belt swimming, to the modern day Ironman and Ironwoman racing first introduced at Coolangatta in 1966, today over 10,000 competitors and club members make their annual pilgrimage to the host beach as they chase those elusive gold medals. The chance to add their names into the annals of Surf Life Saving, alongside some of Australia’s greatest sporting heroes.
