Red Beach lifeguards will be back at the popular northern beach of Pakiri to continue their volunteer surf patrols from Saturday 16 December.
The Red Beach club is now entering its ninth summer of patrolling at Pakiri. The decision to patrol there stemmed from the club’s fast-growing membership and the ability to provide highly-qualified lifeguards.
Last summer, from 17 December to 12 February, the volunteer lifeguards at Pakiri completed 839 patrol hours and carried out 118 preventive actions.
This summer's surf patrols will continue through to Sunday 25 February.
