We kicked off an amazing week last Sunday with a visit to Coochiemudlo Island Surf Life Saving Club, a small island off the coast of Brisbane’s bayside in beautiful Morton Bay. The day was made extra special as it was launch day for the club’s new kit that Sunrise At Bondi had had the opportunity to design and supply.
The club has a proud history of being a family based club with a friendly atmosphere and that couldn’t have been truer with the reception that Maxi received when he stepped off the jetty onto the beach!
As the island is not prone to rips and does not have surf the club focuses strongly on First Aid and Patrol and they are extremely skilled and excel in this area, so much so they are the current holders of the following awards;
- Steve Owen Surf Life Saving Club of the Year
- Pat Kelly Patrol Proficiency Award
- Robin Donchi 1st Aid Room Competition Award
It was long before Maxi was in the water with the nippers taking part in a board race or 2 and then the crowd were keen to watch Maxi carry out a board rescue of club member Meg to perfection!
The crowd then retreated to the beach to listen to Maxi talk of his own story of how he went from being a nipper in Sydney to the position of Bondi Lifeguard and then the members asked as many questions as they could think of!
Selfies, a few autographs, great BBQ and a raffle for club funds rounded out an amazing morning, we can’t thank Club President Lance Price, Des Kerr, Chris McGrath and all the committee at Coochie enough for making us so welcome……….
Maxi & I will forever remember our first SLSC visit, Coochie you are in our hearts, keep up the great work!

It is regarded worldwide as one of Western Australia’s iconic events so in 2015 Maxi and his Bondi Rescue team were heading west!So Maxi rings Leigh to ask if we can quickly design some jammers for the Bondi Rescue Team [...]
In April this year we thought it would be a great idea to surprise a few friends of Sunrise At Bondi for a morning swim, the surprise was that many of our swimming crew didn’t actually know that Maxi was going to coming along and join in the fun!A few of the younger girls were so shocked they [...]
