My name is David and I am originally from the sunny sands of Bondi, Sydney, Australia. I participated in the nippers programme as young child before moving into surf life-saving in my late teenage years and through my twenties. During my time at North Bondi Surf Life Saving Club and as an active ‘Lifesaver’ patrolling the beach I attained my First Aid Certificate, Bronze Medallion, Advanced Resuscitation Certificate and Inflatable Rescue Boat Crew Certification. I was a patrol member for ten years keeping the shores of Bondi a safe and happy place for people to enjoy and swim.
Having spent so much time learning and being both a Nipper and a Lifesaver I am thrilled to be able to give back now as a member of the Israel Life Saving Federation and show the children and young adults of Israel how you can have fun in the water and be safe whilst imparting knowledge that will allow them to learn and use the skills I hold so close to me.
