DEVELOP YOUR BEACH & OCEAN AWARENESS. HOW TO USE & AVOID CURRENTS. Four week online course for open water swimmers and beginner surfers (one hour per week via Skype). In this course you will learn: - How to spot currents - Know how to use and get out of rips - Know how to deal with Hypothermia, cold water shock, incapacitation and the after drop - Understand how to analyse any surf / swim zone - Learn about swell, waves, tides and rules of the line up - Know how to accurately interpret surf forecasts - What you need to know if you are swimming without a wetsuit in cold water Once you finished the online training module you have the option to join our practical water safety module. During this practical session we go to several different beaches and help you analyse your surf/swim zone before we enter the water to experience a real rip current and guide you safely out of it again. After this course you will have an increased ocean and beach awareness and be able to accurately analyse your beach and swim/surf area so you can go into the water with confidence. If you want to further boost your skills we would love to welcome you to our weekly water safety classes (1h) where you can develop your water confidence and safety skills on a regular basis under the supervision and guidance of a certified beach lifeguard and swim/surf instructor.
