Summer Surf Girl

The Summer Surf Girl program is first and foremost a member development program which seeks to engage female members within Surf Life Saving and to develop their skills and experience for their future careers within and outside the movement.

The Summer Surf Girl program has now injected more than $13.7 million into Surf Life Saving clubs throughout Queensland since the program’s inception in 1964.  All funds raised are distributed back into participating clubs to be used in a variety of ways such as, the maintenance and purchase of new rescue equipment, surf safety education, member development, increasing volunteer memberships and expanding training programs.

The program continues to grow and develop and in 2013 we saw 20 entrants from as far north as Cairns right down to Coolangatta, collectively (for the second time in the program’s history) raise over one million dollars for their respective clubs.
