Welcome Kirk 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?
This is my second season
I spent 12 years patrolling at Collaroy in Sydney when I was younger and always wanted to get back into it
Q – Is your experience so far what you thought it would be?
It has been better. A great bunch of people to patrol and socialise with
I thoroughly enjoy the training too!
On a lighter side
Q – Where did you grow up? (Assuming you’ve grown up)
Sydney – Go the Blues!
Q – What’s the best job you’ve ever had?
Other than this?? There’s two… ski instructing – where I got to ski ‘all day, every day’. And I worked as a zipline guide for a summer in Canada.
Q – Any nicknames?
Captain (haha, very original)
Q – Any Hobbies?
Pickleball, travelling, golf
Q – Favourite Music/Musician/Band
Q – Can you cook and what’s your favourite dish to prepare?
I can – steak & fries, and I can do a mean pulled pork
Q – Final & Life defining Question…. Pineapple on Pizza, Yes or No??

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.
