IRB EXAM - PIHA- 25 OCTOBER 2008

On a cold overcast Saturday, Ryan Oxborrow, Hayden Conmee and Jamie Love travelled down to Piha to complete the final component of their IRB Drivers Award. This day is was the culmination of an intensive training process, beginning with an IRB Intro School, where the basics of IRB driving were learnt, followed by a minimum of 10 hours boat time at the club. Following club training, a Northern Region run "Finishing School" was attended, and on completion of this course, our guards were able to progress on to the examination.

IRB Exams require a minimum of 1.5m surf, and "testing" conditions to be able to be run. As you can see from the photos, conditions at Piha were "testing" to say the least.

Congratulations to Ryan Oxborrow, Hayden Conmee and Jamie Love for becoming the clubs newest IRB Operators.

Congratulations also to Evan for becoming the clubs newest IRB Instructor.

04/10/08 SLGA Exam

With the first SLGA Exam of the season done and dusted, id like to congratulate Lachie Conmee, John-Michael Hicks and Natalie King on gaining their Surf Life Guard Award! The surf at Piha was about 1.5-2m and our guys showed the Heads guards can handle their surf. The majority of the candidates that needed rescuing were Piha clubbies. One even swallowed a jelly fish, good effort! I was stationed on the IRB as water safety and got three rescues (half my quota for the season). Good work guys I look forward to patrolling with you.
