Published: March 11, 2021 Last Updated: March 03, 2021
SLSQ compiled a list of top volunteers who spend the most time on the sand and our young gun Logan Pieters came in at number 4. Great work Logan!
"For me it's just good to get down to the beach, volunteer your time and just help out really," he said.
"It's a lot of fun as well, anything could happen during the day, rescues, incidents all that type of stuff, it's just good fun.
"It's awesome, I love it and everyone there is lovely, a lot of helping people in the club."
Surf lifesaving runs in the Pieters family, with Logan's parents patrol captains at Coolum Beach as well.
The teen is also the current radio communications officer for Coolum as well.
"I just jump down in the morning and do a couple of shifts on the weekend, just whenever I'm free."
As for the future the teen has big plans to stay involved.
"Further down the track when I turn 17, I'd love to get my silver medallion for beach management so I can be a patrol captain and have my own patrol."

It takes a lot of money to run a surf lifesaving club; from the equipment needed on the beach (vehicles, boards, IRBs, first aid kits, defibrillators etc) to administration and training to facilitate patrolling.
So if you can't join us, support us through one of the following options.
