Red Beach has eight newly-qualified IRB drivers and a new IRB instructor.
All nine were successful in passing their respective exams at Bethells Beach on Sunday 19 August. And despite a challenging 2.5m surf thrown up by the west coast, all came through with flying colours.
IRB Instructor Award: Brodie Campbell
IRB Driver Awards: David Bavage, Max Boocock, Reuben Creighton, Jon Fortes, Olivia Kayes, Blake Readman, Olivia Soesbergen, Flynn Southcombe.
The club also extends its congratulations to Red Beach Powercraft Manager Peter Kramer who trained up and prepared the lifeguards for the awards. And thanks also to IRB drivers Kees Kramer and Mark Readman for providing water safety at Bethells Beach during the exam.
