Board paddling is one of the basic skills for surf life saving and is also an exciting area of competition to get involved in. Board events include single board races, board rescues and relay events.

Trigg Island SLSC offers members professional training squads. Squads are filled with people that have achieved great amounts of individual success, and have joined others to achieve in team events. Our board squads hold members that have gone on to compete and win medals at the Australian Surf Life Saving Championships.

All members that desire to train within board squads are encouraged and looked after. Quality equipment and well prepared sessions are provided, to assist learning progress. A coach oversees every session and will provide technique assistance if required. For our beginner athletes we offer the chance to use club boards for competition and training purposes.
