This book is the second edition and given the great reception it has had in Spanish, we have decided to augment and translate it into English.
In Lifeguard for Surfers we will see from how to mobilize / immobilize a person with possible spinal injury to the explanations of urban legends, going through the types of rescues and trailers for the different profiles of surfers with problems that we can find at sea. All these procedures, methods and guidelines are improving over time, therefore, the surfer must be continuously recycled and updated, which we will try to do from this book.
