Rescue Board

Soft top Surf Life-Saving Rescue board designed to meet specifications suitable for rescues on inland or coastal waters.


Across the world, the Surf Lifesaving organisation is present on almost all significant beaches and some inland waterways. The workhorse rescue board has saved countless lives throughout its use. Our soft top design offers new levels of safety regarding ocean and water rescue because of the higher floatation properties and reduced impact potential in adopting a soft outer shell construction. High visibility colours in a soft outer shell construction are ideal for multiple situations where a rescue board is required for inland waterways or beaches.

Performance Highlights
Water rescue using a purpose-made rescue board requires that the design meets exacting performance requirements. It must have enough volume and stability to support a victim while rescuing. The deck must offer enough grip to secure the victim, further improved by including a recessed deck into which the victim can be secured. Multiple grab handles must also be included for ease of securing with the hands when in the water or on board, at the front or rear. The board must also be fast and efficient and be easily paddled by the hands, whether on the knees, typical of Australian lifesavers or on the stomach. Sufficient nose curvature is added to limit nose-diving, and the rear rails provide positive bite when returning to shore in foam or cleaner breaks. The removable rear fin is secured within a universal fin box and is set well forward for maximum control and manoeuvrability.

Underside, all epoxy resin laminates, 4oz fibreglass + 1mm bamboo sheeting + 4oz fibreglass + 3mm high-density polyethylene (HDPE) smooth skin outer laminate layer. The inner core uses 18kg/m3 EPS foam + wood stinger for added longitudinal stiffness.
  • Care Avoid high impact with rocks and objects which my cause damage. Do not leave exposed to strong sunlight for an extended time. If securing to car roof rack, do not over-tighten straps.
  • Storage For outside storage, use a board bag for the protection of your board. Rinse with freshwater before storage. Minimising any exposure to the elements. If you can store indoors, store on horizontal or vertical vertical rack. Avoid heat sources.
