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.

was meant to do my paramedic last year. 15 floor stations for exams. 90% pass mark. very very high standard and only a few out of few 100 make it. did my EMT and training was like HELL. lots to learn within 4 months of study, essays, , assessments, we called it hell week.

Swim tests for Lifeguarding always gives me anxiety. I always feel out of place because everybody else had done swim team or water polo their whole life and I’m just there 😂 😂

I once had to do a test to keep my leader of section rank for band and lost it because I was sick as well. Luckily i got a redo. Very relatable and not quite fair.

Glad they given him a second chance. If it was me I would of gone home crying at the end of the first session and I would of started looking for a new job. He deserved a second chance

I’m a Uk pool lifeguard. When I did my initial training and times, I struggled. Not so much now but still it’s hard. But when I did my initial times there where some local beach lifeguards just training. Fck me them guys could swim.....they were half men half fish. They where all young but don’t let the age be a thing. These guys were dedicated sportsmen. The speed they did their swims was outrageously fast. I was in awe and am sure my jaw dropped to the floor. I’m a tubby but these guys didn’t have an ounce of fat on them. Anybody that qualifies to beach lifeguard is a hero.

The standard is because you need to be able to save lives.

USLA standard is 500 meters in 10 minutes or less. Just remember that a lot of what makes competitive swimmers fast is great form. Perfect streamline, proper breathing... look at how close a competitive swimmer’s mouth is to the water when they breathe. A lot of that goes out the window in surf. Or when towing a person. Not saying competitive swimmers don’t make great lifeguards because they absolutely can and do. But the time differences between a strong waterman and a competitive swimmer when swimming in the pool narrows considerably when in the open ocean.

In Hawaii, We have to do 1000 yd run/ 1000 yd swim in under 25 minutes. My best time is 18:40 in ocean conditions. Then that is followed by 100/100/100 run/swim/run in 3 minutes and a rescue paddle 400yds in 4 minutes. Again, these are done in the ocean, not a pool. Conditions don’t give a handicap on time.

that was his wakeup call, but just imagine with his attitude where he said he was cocky, just imagine before the test if soembody needed saving and his attitude could have cost lives.

Oh no! I am super happy he got a second chance. Honestly I think everyone in life deserves a seecond chance. Even those who did bad because they have a chance of changing. I would swim for 2-3 hours every day untill i had to do online classes but I still jump into the pool in my backyard with normal clothes!

Fair play! But that will teach him to go away before a test. (Although maybe he had to so)
