Escape a Rip in Rip School 


Most Surf Educate Australia school programs include some kind of rip escape content. This enables the children to see how easy it can be to ride and escape 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 escaping a rip by floating.

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
