Last week was a great week for great lake surfers. It is rare to get good waves in the summer. I was excited to get a few freshwater slides, but I was even more excited about being able to share my surf lifeguarding experience with 20 brand new lifeguards. This was not just a powerpoint presentation. The Surf rescue skills were practiced and all students were able to apply what they learned to live situations.
The class was a able to take place because of the ARC Project and the Great Lakes Rescue Project. Matuli is really excited about woking with these two groups. In the works, a possible waterman challenge in Lake Michigan this September, check back for updates.
