The Irish tow surf rescue club was set up nearly 10 years ago to highlight the need for qualified and experienced jetski drivers.

We aim to make our sport of surfing safer by also putting life saving equipment in spots that are hard to access and work closely with the coast guard and helicopter service for fast and effective rescues.

 

 

We have about 30 members paid up this year and always are glad for more. So please get in contact through the club page or by contacting Peter Conroy direct at peterrr22@hotmail.com
