Big Wave Risk Assessment Group returns to Australia – presented by Patagonia

14 February 20


With the Big Wave Championship wrapping up in Nazaré this week, no doubt you’ve caught some insane footage of surfers pushing the boundaries of what’s humanly possible. Behind such unbelievable rides and heart-pumping rescues, it’s vital that there’s a strong foundation of skills and equipment training.

This is why we’re stoked to announce that the Big Wave Risk Assessment Group (BWRAG) is returning to Australia for the second annual Torquay Safety Summit this March, Saturday the 21st to Sunday 22nd.

Presented by Patagonia Australia, this training will be hosted by BWRAG Chief Master Instructor Pat Chong Tim of Hawaii alongside Australian surfers Dan Ross and Zeb Walsh. Representatives from the Australian Lifesaving Service and Surfing Doctors will also run sessions, which span from ocean risk management, in-water rescue, CPR/AED and emergency medical interventions, to training on correct breathing, dynamic breath hold, and energy management.

The summit welcomes surfers of all levels to take part, with participants receiving Australian Lifesaving Service CPR certification and qualifying to purchase the Patagonia PSI Vest – a pioneering, purpose-built tool for use in the most critical surf situations.
