How many years have you been on a volunteer surf patrol lifesaver for?
I got my SRC (Surf Rescue Certificate) when I was in Under 14s so that was three years ago and then bronze medallion last year. So I have done surf patrol lifesaving for three years.

Why did you want to become a volunteer surf lifesaver?
When I was 10 years old my family moved from Northern Victoria down to the beach and my parents wanted my brother and I to learn more about water safety so we joined surf lifesaving and it kind of went from there.

What is your favourite thing about being on volunteer surf patrol at the Ocean Grove Surf Life Saving Club?
This is actually my first patrol at Ocean Grove, I am actually from Torquay but I have transferred over to Ocean Grove. It is really good and great people. It is really good beach, everyone is having fun, good surf, good times.

Do have any superstitions before you complete a shift as surf patrol lifesaver?
Drink bottle, I always put my sunscreen on to make sure I am sun smart. Slip, Slop, Slap.
