Surf Life Saver Profile - 33
Published: November 16, 2023
Welcome Jock and thanks for sharing with us
So let’s get deep and meaningful straight up
Q – How long have you been in Coolum Surf Life Saving Club and what motivated you to volunteer your time? 5 years now. I love the beach and like helping people so I figured it ticks these two boxes and is good way to get out in the community.
Q – Is your experience so far what you thought it would be?
I underestimated how deep-rooted Coolum SLSC is in the Coolum community. I’ve made many friendships and community connections as a result of being a member.
On a lighter side
Q – Where did you grow up? (Assuming you’ve grown up)
I grew up in Kedron (North Brisbane) before moving up the coast, to Peregian Beach, at age 13.
Q – What’s the best job you’ve ever had?
I’ve been teaching for 13 years and I still think is best job I’ve had.
Q – Any nicknames?
Q – Any Hobbies?
Surfing, touch football and pickleball to name a few.
Q – Favourite Music/Musician/Band
I like a bit of everything but hard to go past a bit of Paul Kelly as we enter the festive season.
Q – Can you cook and what’s your favourite dish to prepare?
I like to BBQ and make a pretty good Spaghetti Bolognese.
Q – Final & Life defining Question…. Pineapple on Pizza, Yes or No??
Thank you Jock

Support Coolum Surf Club
Not ready to become part of Coolum Surf Club but still want to help?
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.
Coolum Beach SLSC Nippers
Does your child want to become a Nipper?
Looking for a fun summer sport where your kids will learn essential surf safety skills, gain confidence in the ocean, and meet new friends?
Coolum Nippers is the answer! Nippers run from the September school holidays to February/March and is open to kids from 5 to 12 yrs.
Not only will they learn surf safety and what surf lifesaving is all about, but also have the opportunity to compete in carnivals and have mid-week training to improve their skills.
