Meet our sixth crew member of Six Surf Lifeguards

Antz Morgan

We’re pleased to announce Antony Morgan has joined the team as our sixth IRB driver.

Originally a member of Taylor’s Mistake SLSC, Antony’s now a member of Hot Water Beach. He’s been a qualified driver for five years, and has been racing competitively for four. He qualified as an examiner two years ago and has completed several lengthy IRB trips before.

A passionate and dedicated lifeguard, Antony said he was keen to be involved because he’s ready for a “massive challenge” and would like to help do his part in raising the profile of SLSNZ’s centenary.

“Ever since I read the original story of the guys that attempted this journey originally, I’ve wanted to do something similar for surf life saving. This is the perfect opportunity for me to do that,” says Antony.

With our opening Junior Surf day having 70+ juniors and yesterday having a similar number it is great to have people prepared to put in the time to update their skills and learn new ones to pass them on to our juniors. :) :)
