This winter, three of our guards have been braving the cold water (and with the help of some amazing instructors from Sunset Beach Surf Lifesaving Club) have been working towards their IRB drivers qualifications.
The training was incredibly condensed but our three lifeguards rose to the challenge and performed spectacularly on their exam.
A massive congratulations to Emma, Tiare, and Ben; you have certainly done Whangarei Heads VSLSP proud! A congratulations also to Temiko who achieved his IRB crewman's award.
I also want to say a big thank you to Shane Edwards and his team for their time and sharing their incredible knowledge and skills.
Check out some of the picture below.
