Every November we run an international beach lifeguard training and certification course. All the Surf Simply coaches have to renew their certification every two years anyway, so we thought rather than leave Nosara to do the course we would bring it to us. We fly in examiners qualified to hand out the certification and up to date with all the latest first aid and CPR protocols, then we figured it would be shame not open the course up to whoever else wanted to do it.
We run it on a non profit basis and as a result we had a great mix of people. From young surf coaches and yoga instructors to retirees and even a legitimate brain surgeon (who modestly assured us that brain surgery isn’t exactly rocket science). We put together this video of some of the best bits. Hope you enjoy it.
