Bondi Rescue follows the work of the elite professional #Lifeguards who patrol Australia’s busiest beach. This is Australia’s real life Baywatch! Taking the viewers on their journey through mass rescues, drownings, resuscitations, shark sightings, and all number of the weird and wonderful experiences Bondi Beach dishes up.
In #BondiRescue the audience sees the action through the eyes of real characters and #lifeguards like Hoppo, Deano, Reidy, Jesse, Maxi, Whippet and Harries, as they catch thieves, perform CPR, make drug busts, break up fights, and even handle a navy bomb that washes ashore one afternoon. Every year throws up new and completely unexpected challenges, and how lifeguards adapt is what makes Bondi Rescue a show that’s about much more than swimmers being saved in the surf.

This video is very heart warming the last clip really struck my heart because I was also diagnosed with leukemia in 2018 i was 15 i am still fighting it and to see that even going through this hell of a experience that kids younger than me can see the light through the tunnel and be happy and smile i know its a hard thing to go through i'm 17 now and i still have a couple years to go to see the end i wish the best for Lara

I have perfect vision but I honestly didn't know that a lot of other people that have all of their senses too can't feel certain things and pretty much solely rely on the sight. I'm constantly using a lot of my senses simultaneously even when I don't need to be. Sense of touch/feeling so I have an idea of where everything is around me so even when I close my eyes or if it's pitch black in my room or house I so used to using all my senses at once that I just know. The way the floor sounds under my feet at certain points on the floor, when a space feels more cramped versus open, and at the beach I was always good at boogey boarding cause I was always catching the good waves. A lot of people couldn't catch the waves in time because they took too long to turn around cause the were looking at the water to see a wave coming but the entire time I'll be watching the shore and as soon as I start to feel the slight pull that's when you start paddling so that you don't get pulled over it. Idk if any of this makes sense XD

Lara’s story really means a lot to me especially since I recently lost a friend to leukaemia after he had over a year and a half of failing treatment. He has a special place in my heart, and so does Lara.

Nicola exemplifies that our life has stages and every stage is important. She is not in the pro surfer life any more but has found meaning in her next stage of life.
Don’t get stuck mourning what you no longer can do, celebrate all the memories and find something you can enjoy in the now!

Everyone at Bondi Rescue are truly inspirational, but hearing Nicola's story hits very close to home with me. I hope she knows that she is such a strong, amazing woman. Those kids look up to her and have the best role model, and what she is doing for them is so lovely. I hope I can be like her, pushing through and making a difference!
