Huntington State Beach Lifeguard RE-Qualification Swim

Huntington State Beach Lifeguard RE-Qualification Swim

The Huntington State Beach Lifeguard Re-Qual swim, and try outs were held today in Huntington Beach at Lifeguard Headquarters. The swim for the re-hires (or exisiting Lifeguards) consisted of a 1000 yard ocean swim, around two buoys and back into shore. The swim must be completed within 20 minutes.  The air temperature was in the mid 60’s, and water temp was approximately in the mid 50’s.

My daughter is a 5th year lifeguard at Huntington State Beach, and she completed the swim today. She does the swim without a wetsuit (because it is easier for her to swim), and wears two caps to keep her head warm. She came in so cold, she shivered for about 45 minutes after the swim.

The Lifeguards do such a great job at maintaining their fitness, so they are ready for public safety and the beach season this summer.

  1. I was a lifeguard when I was in high school and both of my boys enjoyed jobs as guards also but, we never had the opportunity to lifeguard at the beach! Would you really consider that a job?!! What a wonderful experience it must be to be a lifeguard at Huntington State Beach.

  2. Hi Debe – that is great that you were a lifeguard and your sons as well. It really is a great job, and she has such confidence in “managing the beach” and the water for sure. She is very accomplished and competes in the competitions as well.
