SET GOALS AND NEVER GIVE UP!
Trent Maxwell or ‘Lifeguard Maxi’, as he is more commonly known, is the youngest ever Professional Lifeguard to work at Bondi Beach. Maxi started at Bondi over 12 years ago as a 16 year old and his inspiring Lifeguard career has been well documented on Channel 10’s award winning show Bondi Rescue. As arguably the show’s most popular character, Maxi has gained a global profile as Bondi Rescue has aired in over 91 countries around the world, most recently in the United States.
In 2016 Maxi became a Firefighter for NSW Fire + Rescue and then in 2018 Maxi became a Qualified Rescue Operator as part of the Heavy Rescue team based at the City of Sydney Fire Station. This unique career combination see’s Maxi as a much-needed young, positive, male role model for future generations.
In 2018 Maxi added the title of published Author to his credits, releasing his ‘Maxi the Lifeguard’ educational, fictional, children’s book series, co-written with David Lawrence with a goal to save young lives. Based on much of Maxi’s childhood the books are full of valuable life lessons and water safety messages such as Rips, Heatstroke and DRS ABCD so children can learn as they read.
In 2018 Maxi founded Social Enterprise ‘Live Learn Survive’ with business partner Leigh Mason. A series of fun, fully mobile, interactive Fire & Water Safety workshops designed to teach children and young adults live saving skills in schools and clubs in any community.
Maxi gives his time as an Ambassador for Tourism Australia and Royal Life Saving Society UK where he promotes their Children's Rookie Lifeguard program. In 2013 Maxi rode a Jetski from Sydney to Cairns to raise awareness for Headspace and Youth Mental Health.
