SURF lifesaving competitors lining up for a state title were diverted to a race against time to save four tourists swept out to sea on the Sunshine Coast.
ADELAIDE has started the countdown to this year’s Lifesaving World Championships, which will attract more than 5000 competitors from 40 countries to Glenelg beach.
THE Sunshine Coast has secured a major coup, with an event that delivered 20,000 people and about $20 million to the local economy locked in for a return.
A STRAND of talented lifesaver Robert "Bongo” Thomasson will ride the waves aboard a new surf boat launched in his honour at Maroochydore.
IT WILL be a sea of red and yellow come February 17, when the Surf Lifesaving Queensland's 2017 Youth Championships arrive in Hervey Bay.
'I STILL can't believe I won.'
