Description

Welcome to the World Conference in Surfing Medicine

A warm invitation to all surfers, students, medics, physiotherapists/osteopaths, scientists, psychologists, water safety professionals and surf coaches/trainers with interest in Surfer's health and performance.

Surfing Medicine International (SMI) welcomes you to their 5th international conference – “The World Conference on Surfing Medicine” (4th-8th October 2017). Join us at the ‘Memmo Baleeira Hotel’ in Sagres, located within the beautiful southwest corner of the Portugal where our organisation took its first steps way back in 2012. Learn about surfer’s health and safety, contribute to the development of surfing medicine, and celebrate with us what will be a key landmark in SMI’s history.

Following on from the success our Biarritz conference, we now turn to look at Surfing Medicine’s position on the world stage. With more and more people surfing everyday and the introduction of our sport to the greatest sporting stage, The Olympics, surfer’s well-being has never been so important. Join us in Sagres to put your life saving skills to the test with our new and improved collection of hands on workshops, specifically designed for treating and caring for our friends in the surf. We will also be exploring hot topics of drowning resuscitation, UV exposure, recent environmental challenges, the professional surfer and many more. For the first time we will also hear from experts working in the field of ‘surfing and disability’, so there will be lots in store.

The SMI, together with your help, will be tackling head-on the one of the biggest challenges in surfing medicine – educating and training surfers in water safety. We want to continue the push to make surfers themselves the ‘lifeguards of the ocean’, and giving THEM the tools to make their surfing community as safe and accessible as possible for all.

If you are booking as a student - pick the STUDENT fee, provide a study ID to info@surfingmed.com, as proof of starvation.

If you are a stoke surfer non-student, pick the NON-Medic/Resident ticket.

We look forward to seeing you all on the familiar shores of the Algarve. We'll see you in the line up!
