Surf life­saver un­lock­ing his wa­ter knowl­edge

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Business -

CITY Beach surf life­sav­ing cham­pion David Locke is pass­ing his ex­per­tise on at Scar­boro Surf Life Sav­ing Club.

Mr Locke, who started the Red Sharks Swim Team with Dou­ble­view res­i­dent A.J. McDon­ald at HBF Sta­dium last year, said it was im­por­tant for chil­dren to learn about surf con­di­tions.

“I come from a surf swim­ming back­ground and saw the need for the kids to be able to ne­go­ti­ate the surf bet­ter and feel safe in the wa­ter,” he said. “They need to make the right de­ci­sions at the right time in and out of the ocean.”
