Survive a Rip
Survive a Rip is the focal point of all SEA programs - teaching kids easy survival techniques in surf rips and the importance of basic water safety messages
SEA is a major contributor to water safety in Australia
Survive a Rip in Rip School
Most Surf Educate Australia school programs include some kind of Rip Survival content. This enables the children to see how easy it can be to ride a rip to safety, providing confidence that rips do not go "out to sea" rather back over to a safe sand bank in most instances
Watch as school children show the simple technique of surviving a rip by floating.
Note how quickly the rip moves off the shore and along the rocks before it swings back along the beach onto a sandbank where the kids can stand.
Surf Educate Australia's lessons equip students with skills that can save their life and the lives of family members by participating in this amazing practical lesson
Video session 4: Dee why beach rip escapes with a nice flow in the south corner and small rips inside the surf break
Video session 6: We find a large rip at DY north of the surf club, students watch instructor Jess Escape a Rip, then wish to volunteer a couple of their piers to try. We use another tamer rip further south to educate a group of less confident swimmers
