COG Digital are really proud to have delivered Surf Hero, the Animated Kids Website for Sutherland Shire Council.
Sutherland Shire Council approached COG Digital in our Cronulla design studio to design and develop their new website on the Wordpress platform, which needed to be responsive to mobile phone and tablet, both Apple and Android and work primarily on ipads within the classroom environment.
Surf Hero is a beach education website just for kids. Sonny, Dr Rip, Max and Sally are here to help kids have fun at the beach but also to make sure they are aware of the hidden dangers as well. Check out the fun activities about safety signs, rip currents, learning to surf and the role of Lifeguards and Lifesavers. Sutherland Shire Council employs professional Lifeguards to patrol the beaches in Bate Bay year round. Council Lifeguards are highly trained in all facets of water safety and through council’s surf education programs, have been providing surf education and survival training for more than 20 years. Surf Hero is a new initiative to increase the reach of our surf safety messages.
