Surf Rescue Training Manikin


Due to the size & complexity of this product, this particular product is not listed with a price. To discuss purchasing this product, please enquire through the form below.

  • The shorter height of 1.5m makes this manikin more manageable for a range of rescuers
  • The dry weight is reduced to 20kg which increases to 40kg+ when pulled from the water
  • Weighting lowered from the torso to the hips to improve stability in a moving/rolling ocean.

Features & Benefits;

  • Durable PVC sleeves placed on the lower leg to reduce drag during extraction
  • Polypropylene strips running from the shoulders to the knees allow flexibility in and out of the water but prevent the manikin from being too ‘floppy’
  • A polypropylene loop to the back allows the manikin to be lowered into position or hung up to dry
  • Arms are built aloft to simulate a live volunteer but no risk of dislocated shoulders or wrists!
  • Bright orange overalls and SOLAS reflective tape on the head make this manikin very conspicuous in open water
  • Protective overalls are user-replaceable and greatly extend the life of the manikin
