Lifeguard & First Aider Hire


Although the Thanet area is lucky to have  beach lifeguards during the main season they are not on all of the beaches all of the time. Additionally during the early season throughout the week when most school trips take place lifeguards are not present either.

Dave Melmoth (Winner of Surf Life Saving Great Britain’s National Life Saver of the Year) from Joss Bay Surf School has had over 20 years experience in beach safety. This includes 10 years with the HM Coastguard and 4 years with the RNLI Lifeboat Service. During his years in beach related rescue, Dave has been Beach Lifeguard Manager for Thanet District Council as well as a long serving beach lifeguard himself. Dave also more recently was seconded to the London 2012 Olympics to provide water safety at Eton Dorney. Additionally Dave runs professional beach lifeguard courses and has trained and assessed most of the local beach lifeguard team. With all this knowledge and experience we can offer you the best advice and lifeguard provision available.
