The club’s lifeguard numbers took another jump when 20 candidates obtained the Surf Lifeguard Award at an exam held at Orewa Beach on Sunday 8 November.
Of the successful candidates, 14 were Red Beach Rookies last summer and have since turned 14, the minimum age for the award. They now move into U15 ranks.
The club extends a big 'thank you' to the team of instructors who put in an incredible amount of time and effort to ensure the success of the candidates.
The successful Surf Lifeguard Award candidates, pictured above, are:
Front Row (L-R): Maddie Rist, Amelia Swarbrick, Amy Archer, Isla Young, Lilly Lewis, Blake Van der Net, Sam Currin.
Back Row (L-R): Carter Saull, Gaby Hernandez, Emma Giles, Alyssa Howe, Victoria Lane, Ruth Kayes, Thomas Aitken, Jonelle Little, Kaiha Gilbertson, Alistar Rogers, Darren Shand.
