What is Ocean Heroes?

The Ocean Heroes are elite ocean athletes that race in the surf at exciting events on the coastline of Africa. The athletes are strongly associated with 3 major causes: Clean Oceans; Water Safety and Youth Development

Why the Name Ocean Heroes?

Most of the athletes that compete in Ocean Heroes events are volunteer lifesavers that donate their time and energy to protect the public. They risk their lives to save the lives of others and therefore are the epitome of great athletes, hence the name Ocean Heroes. The value of athletes that save lives is further increased as our athletes support campaigns that make a difference to the environment and people of South Africa. We are strongly motivated by 3 major causes:

Clean Ocean Campaign
The ocean is congested with vast amounts of rubbish and it is the responsibility of Ocean Heroes to help in the fight against water pollution in all forms. We run charity runs during our races which do directly to this cause

Water Safety Education Campaign
It is vital that water safety skills are communicated with the uneducated and general public. We teach how to be water safe and include sessions on CPR/ rips/ currents/ to name a few

Youth Development Campaign
They develop younger athletes to become better sportsmen/women and volunteers. In some Ocean Heroes events the youth will be encouraged to compete and/ or qualify for major races.
