SURF REPORTS - TAURANGA, NEW ZEALAND
The Mount Maunganui Lifeguard Service is situated approximately 20 minutes from Tauranga in the sunny Bay of Plenty. Our clubhouse is at the base of Mauao on the "Mounts" main beach where lifeguards are responsible for patrolling 10 kilometres of coastline. It started in 1929 with a few young adventurers, some wooden planks and a surf reel and line rescue.... for more than 75 years the Mount Maunganui Lifeguard Service has been a loyal part of the Tauranga City Community. To become a lifeguard requires a number of skills and attributes, most important of which are a positive outlook and a ‘can do' attitude! There are some specific requirements such as the ability to swim well, but these can be developed along with your surf lifeguard instructor, as they lead you through your Surf Lifeguard Award – the minimum requirement to patrol New Zealand beach’s.
