Our glossary has been created to support diverse audiences to improve their understanding of basic beach and surf lifesaving terminology.
Breaking down language
We know that many barriers exist to the safe participation of all communities with the coastline.
The "beach life" has it's own jargon and it's own language - learning to better understand this language can help our diverse communities better understand how to safely participate and engage in beach and coastal recreation safely.
This glossary was created directly in line with our "Day at the Beach" program and we encourage the provision of this glossary to participants prior to the session. The glossary can be studied together in a group setting. For those interested in providing some activities around the glossary please see the glossary worksheet below.
