A former Killcare sprint and beach relay legend has been instrumental in setting up a surf life saving beach education program in Dubai.

Whilst living and working in Dubai, Stephen Munnery helped run the Viking Surf Sports program at Expo 2020 Australia last month which was supported by Surf Life Saving Australia (SLSA).

With support from SLSA as part of its 2025 Strategic Plan to support drowning prevention internationally, the Vikings gave Australian Pavilion visitors at the expo a taste of surf lifesaving.

To help celebrate all things sport for National Day, the Vikings showcased this with fun lifesaving races and a valuable water safety message.

SLSA Patron, His Excellency General the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC, attended the event.

“…He’s a Killcare sprint and beach relay legend having won multiple World titles in the Killy cap and inducted into the SLSA Hall of Fame (with equally legendary coach JB),” Killcare SLSC president, Craig Sheppard, said.

“Great work Munners!”
