The Rescue Board is a specialist piece of equipment that is used by Surf Life Savers and Lifeguards. This equipment is used as part of lifeguard training and as a rescue aid; the boards vary from lightweight racing boards to 12 handled rescue boards.
It is used in many forms, as rescue aids or racing boards. The board race involves paddling around a course of floating buoys and racing back to the beach using skill, fitness and technique to get ahead and stay ahead of the rest of the pack.
