Singer, song-writer and rising star Jamie McDell can now add Surf Lifeguard to her list of achievements. The Surf Life Saving ambassador was put through her paces at a one week intensive training camp before Christmas and she has been patrolling a number of beaches, namely Pauanui, Whiritoa and Whangamata, throughout her summer holidays. Hailing from the northern surf town of Mangawhai, Jamie has always surrounded herself with the ocean so it’s no surprise that she now loves being able to call herself an official Surf Lifeguard. “It feels great! It’s something I’ve been around for so long it just kind of feels like I’m where I should be. I love the beach and the ocean more than anything so to be around it all the time and continuously learning more about it is my perfect job,” she says. Jamie says Surf Life Saving is a lot more than just going to the beach to patrol each day, it’s a place to make new friends and learn more about working with others. “There are definitely a lot of life lessons to be learnt and it’s something that is very rewarding in more ways than one.”
