Welcome to the rip current survivor survey


The University of New South Wales and Surf Life Saving Australia are conducting a research project into the rip current hazard on beaches. Rip currents account for the hundreds of drownings and thousands of rescues each year on beaches around the world. The aim of the study is to hear from people who have been caught in rip currents about their rip current experience to gain important insights needed to improve and develop future rip current and beach safety education programs. The online survey is anonymous and takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. You have the option to help us further by conducting up a follow up interview.


Have you ever been caught in a rip? Take the rip current survivor survey below.

The Australian version is designed for Australian residents or anyone who has been caught in a rip in Australia. The USA version has been tailored to residents of the United States with the input of the National Weather Service, Sea Grant, the United States Lifesaving Association and the Great Lakes Surf Rescue Project. The results of the study will be made available to all organisations involved in the study and others who are trying to help educate the public about rip currents and how to survive them.
