An online show about all-things Surf Life Saving across the country!

EPISODE 2


In Episode Two of Surf Studio…

We’re celebrating National Volunteers Week and taking the time to acknowledge and recognise some of the great volunteers we are fortunate enough to have within our movement.

We begin the show with the SLSA President President, Graham Ford AM about how he became involved in Surf life Saving and why volunteering is so special to him and his family.

We also catch-up with Albatross Nippers founder and Australian of the Year Queensland local hero Nick Marshall, from Nobby’s Beach SLSC about his involvement in Surf Life Saving and the introduction of a Nippers program for children with special needs.

Next, we fly to the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter base in Sydney to catch-up with the crew who recently performed a rescue, saving two men from a sinking boat off the coast of Curl Curl, NSW.

And finally, we take a trip to Fairhaven SLSC in Victoria to chat to Club Captain Michael Henderson about his passion for the movement, leadership and the important role volunteers play in the community.
