This summer, First National Real Estate says it will continue sponsoring athletes to improve their life saving skills through the Summer of Surf ‘First National Real Estate Board Series’.

 The Australia-wide real estate network’s sponsorship of the ‘First National Real Estate Board Series’ will be televised weekly on FOX Sports.


Network chief executive Ray Ellis says helping lifesavers competitively improve their skill, speed and efficiency can only help lessen the number of drownings on our beaches each summer.

‘First National Real Estate’s Board Series is intended to encourage competition amongst the fittest and most dedicated athletes in the country as they compete for the First National Real Estate sponsored title’.

At the conclusion the 2015/16 season Summer of Surf will give them an overall ranking in Australia. Competitors will have the opportunity to race in 8 rounds of the series, throughout the season, in a bid to accumulate the highest score from their best 4 rounds.

The top 16 competitors will then be invited to the 8th and final round of the series on the 20/21st of February 2016 at Newport beach, where one male and one female athlete will be crowned ‘Summer of Surf First National Board Series Champion’. 

‘Surf Life Saving is an Australian icon and we see lifesavers using prone paddling boards everyday to save lives. It is great to be able to underpin such a worthwhile sport and provide recognition for those who rise to the top’ said Mr Ellis.

Summer of Surf managing partner Trent Goulding is very excited about the continuation of First National Real Estate’s sponsorship.

‘We sincerely appreciate First National Real Estate’s support in the series for a second year running. Not only does it provide opportunities for young lifesavers to showcase their skills, we are able to entertain a national audience each week on Fox Sports with the aim of inspiring new volunteers to come down and help us keep the beaches safe’ said Mr Goulding.
