During ISLA’s 2012 Easter holiday lifeguard trips to the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua, the Quiksilver Foundation supplied ISLA lifeguards with much needed gear and equipment for saving lives and keeping the beaches safe. In total ISLA performed 99 Rescues, 446 Preventative Actions and 12 Medical Aids that could NOT have been possible without the amazing support of the Quiksilver Foundation.

We are so appreciative of the continued assistance from the Quiksilver Foundation and are thankful for the difference they allow us to make with lifeguarding areas of the world in need of these services. We were also able to leave a ton of Quiksilver equipment and clothing behind to keep our fellow lifeguard friends in Nicaragua and Dominican Republic stoked and prepared for effective on-going  lifeguarding in the regions.

Thanks Quiksilver Foundation!!!

  1. I think the Quiksilver Foundation is one of the rarest organizations that give a full support to other Lifesaving organizations so they can together rise the level of water safety around the world.


  2. I know the Quiksilver brand has been popular worldwide as a brand for water sports especially surfing. I never knew that they also supported lifeguarding on beaches. They sure have quality equipment to crave for and useful for rescue. I admire their efforts and will have my respect.
