Dr Rip’s Science of the Surf talk
Mon. 23 January 2017, 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm AEDT
Are you interested in how beaches work? Do you know how to spot rip currents and how to get out of one? Do you know how waves form and break? What’s a safe wave and an unsafe wave? Why are some beaches safer than others? How will your beach be affected by climate change? Why is rock fishing the most dangerous sport in Australia?
Keep safe in the surf this summer by understanding your favourite beaches better. You'll learn how to “read” the conditions of the beach and importantly, learn techniques if you get caught in a rip current. This popular, informative and entertaining presentation by Dr Rob Brander (aka Dr Rip) is a must for everyone who swims at the beach.
Six randomly chosen attendees will receive a free copy of Dr Rip’s Essential Beach Book.
