The Surf First Aid App Can Save Lives

Developed by the European Association of Surfing Doctors (EASD) and Surfing Medicine International, the Surf First Aid app is the first and a mobile app designed to keep surfers, SUPers and other water sports fans healthy and safe.

The app provides users with info regarding first aid and safety topics and emergency guides, as well as a series of quizzes for testing knowledge plus access to a list of emergency numbers worldwide. It works offline, so the user has permanent access to its content.

Ogi Markovic, board member of EASD, notes: “We believe that nobody should die in conditions where prevention and first aid could have been the difference between life and death. […]There are many surf-relevant first aid and safety topics like CPR basics and drowning prevention, marine bites and stings - for example, stingrays, sharks, and jellyfish - as well as beach flags, hand signals, drowning resuscitation, to name but a few topics.”

The app works on devices running Android and iOS.
