Surf Life Saver Profile - 43

Published: April 17, 2024

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?

First year patrolling.  The motivation was because I have two kids in the Nippers program.  I wanted to get involved with Water Safety to help out at the Sunday and training sessions.

Love the beach and enjoy being part of the team and community.


Q – Is your experience so far what you thought it would be?

Yes, if not better.  Everyone is more than welcoming and friendly


On a lighter side

Q – Where did you grow up? (Assuming you’ve grown up)

I grew up in Toowoomba though always holidayed in Coolum.


(My wife is often not sure if I’ve grown up).


Q – What’s the best job you’ve ever had?

Aside from volunteering here, I love what I do now as a Project Manager for a construction company (Farrago).


Q – Any nicknames?

Nothing fancy just Fischer.


Q – Any Hobbies?

I enjoy long distance running, marathon distance or above.

Fishing, time at the beach and spending time with my beautiful wife and two kids.


Q – Favourite Music/Musician/Band

Enjoy a bit of everything, lean towards a bit of 90’s R & B


Q – Can you cook and what’s your favourite dish to prepare?

I would say I can, but others maybe not.  Not bad at Pork Ribs in the smoker.


Q – Final & Life defining Question…. Pineapple on Pizza, Yes or No??

Yes.  More of every topping the better


Thank you Scott Fischer.

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.
