Five minutes with Bec Creedy

Bec. It is a couple of days out from the race. How does it feel seeing the venue set up and Coolangatta showing signs of the Gold returning for another year?

I’m a very nervous racer. I always have been. So the nerves are starting to kick in. But just being here it makes you a little excited and makes me start thinking about the relief after the race as well.

This Don is the godfather of the Coolangatta Gold

They call Don Marsh the godfather of Surf Life Saving in Tasmania – an old salt who has instilled a love affair of the Coates Hire Coolangatta Gold into his hardy band of diehards who train through the chills of the Tassie winter preparing for the iconic race.

And for 65-year-old Marsh, a legendary competitor and coach from the Carlton Park club in Hobart it’s a case of “do what I do” and not just “do as I say.”


BRP is committed to the ‘Surf Life Saving’ movement and it extends a whole lot further than our title as the official powercraft partner at the top of the endorsed supplier list.

The equipment provided by BRP has played a huge role in the 11,000 rescues that SLS’s volunteer surf lifesavers and lifeguards carry out annually on busy Australian coastal waterways.

Shaping the Future of Sport in Surf Life Saving – National Review Announced

Surf Life Saving Australia (SLSA) will conduct a major review of its sport and recreation programs throughout the remainder of 2015.

It will canvas the Surf Life Saving community nationwide to better understand the future needs and requirements of the organisation from a member’s perspective.

SLSA is a movement that relies on 47,000 volunteer lifesavers to prevent drowning on Australia’s coastline. 

Leadership Masterclass 2015

The SLSA Leaders’ Masterclass was recently conducted at the Westpac Life Saver Helicopter Base, La Perouse from Thursday 3 September – Sunday 6 September 2015. The aim of the Masterclass is to provide an opportunity for existing leaders within Surf Life Saving to participate in a high-level leadership development program.

Leadership Review

SLSA is currently undertaking a national leadership review.  The purpose of the review is to develop a national leadership capability framework designed to assist in the implementation and management of leadership development throughout Surf Life Saving (SLS). 

SLS strategic plan focuses on our vision of ‘zero preventable deaths in Australian waters’.  The success of our strategy is largely dependent on our greatest asset, our people.
