Surfing Doctors is a not for profit organisation comprised of Doctors and health professionals who share a common vocation and a love for surfing.
Our group has already proven itself in various areas, both professionally and in the water. The common theme is that we are prepared to go over and above the call of duty for our fellow man in need with no financial reward expectation.
We have provided medical help at beaches near our own houses, on holidays, surf resorts worldwide and surf contests, such as the World Surf League professional surfing events.
Most of our group are keen surfers who have grown up in the water and adopted the surfing lifestyle.
Our focus is on educating surfers in the field of Basic Life Support (BLS). We also cover a wide range of specialities and levels of experience from medical student to specialists. Therefore, our accumulated skill mix enables us to provide advice on literally any type of surfing ailment and injury.
Aside from 2020, we have also had an annual conference every year since 2010. Every year this has been at G-land, except in 2021 we had the special desert conference at Gnaraloo Station in Western Australia. The conference also provides a great opportunity for networking and mentor ship for our members.
