Summer of Surf Ocean 6 is coming to Coolum Beach 9/10th Nov and we will be looking for a workforce to help out. We will be releasing a schedule of times in coming days but will require IRB drivers and crew, first aid officers, and a general workforce.
We request 4 hours minimum per shift. This will go towards competitor funding for accommodation subsidy under the Competitor and Team Support Funding Policy.
