P2P Rescue is Going Global

Over the past few months, P2P Rescue has made great progress in our goal to make the waters a safer place by building the best ocean rescue boards in the world. To catch our friends and fans up, here are some of the recent highlights:

The World Conference on Drowning Prevention 

This year’s conference takes place October 17-19 in Vancouver, and P2P Rescue will be in attendance. We’re excited for this event, as it will be a great opportunity to connect with others who share our mission. Make sure to follow us on Instagram as we document the conference and highlight the world’s foremost experts, research, systems, and information on drowning prevention, rescue, lifesaving, and water safety.

Our Jet Ski Rescue Sled Makes a Splash

The Jet Ski Rescue Sled is our latest innovation in rescue board design, and designed by the request for lifeguard and ocean rescue agencies. We’re excited to see these sleds at work with the Charleston County Parks and Recreation and the Volusia County Ocean Safety.

Working with Anthony Walsh

Big wave surfer and waterman Anthony Walsh has been having fun with our rescue sleds. He recently posted an Instagram video, which has already been viewed over 10,000 times. While this isn’t exactly a lifesaving mission, we’re grateful for the exposure and help in spreading the world about P2P Rescue. Plus, the video is pretty awesome.

Stay tuned for more big things from P2P Rescue, and thanks for coming along for the ride.

New Zealand SUP Rescue Board Demo

P2P Rescue lands the first Crossover Rescue Board with Surf Life Saving New Zealand for water trials

P2P Rescue is excited to announce that Surf Life Saving New Zealand is conducting water trials with the Crossover Rescue Board. These trials are the first step toward helping both organizations achieve their goals and accomplish their missions.

P2P Rescue’s Crossover Rescue Board is the first rescue board with an on-board deck-flush paddle storage system. The uniquely designed outline allows rescuers to use it as both a standup paddleboard and a prone board. In addition, it has many other features that make it especially attractive to ocean rescue associations. The board is wide enough for a rescuer to stand up, which allows them to see victims at greater distances. The paddle can be stowed out of the way or used as an extension to reach victims. Handles forward and aft can be grabbed quickly, and at only 30 pounds it’s lightweight and easy to carry. We are excited to see Surf Life Saving New Zealand testing this tool in its community and potentially put in service.

Surf Life Saving New Zealand is part of Surf Life Saving, a community organization committed to reducing coastal drownings by 50% by 2020. Every day, their lifesavers rescue 35 people and every hour, they conduct 143 preventive actions.

The mission of Surf Life Saving New Zealand is a perfect complement to P2P Rescue, and the both parties are hopeful that these water trials will advance their mutual goals: saving lives and making the ocean a safer place for all of us.
