Surf Life Saving Australia x G-Shock

G-SHOCK, a favourite choice among the top surfers and beach-goers around the world, is proud to announce its first SLSA signature model. Surf Life Saving Australia is an iconic part of the Australian Beach Culture.

 

The base model is the GLX5600, which features one of the thinnest, compact, best fits of the entire G-SHOCK Series. This model comes equipped with a digital Tide Graph, which is a must-have function for surfers. The watch is made to represent the iconic Red & Yellow Flags that are seen in all Australian Beaches.

 

This Watch is accompanied with a round tin to replicate the life saving rescue flotation devices used by these brave volunteers.

 

 

 

Surf Life Saving Australia

 

Australia’s first volunteer Surf Life Saving clubs emerged in 1907 on Sydney’s ocean beaches. Surf-bathing had been rapidly increasing in popularity in the early 20th Century and in turn by-laws which had previously prevented bathing in daylight hours since the 1830s were gradually removed between 1902 and 1905, to reflect changing public attitudes.

 

These changes had a dramatic impact on local beach culture as the number of beachgoers entering the surf suddenly increased. As many bathers couldn’t swim the number of drownings and attempted rescues also suddenly increased.

 

On October 18, 1907, representatives from Sydney Surf Life Saving Clubs, together with members of other interested groups, met to form the Surf Bathing Association of New South Wales, the organisation which is now known as Surf Life Saving Australia.
