Great Quotes and Boats

“Coastal boats have crew shell elements — fixed oars, sliding seats and curved oar blades. Lifeguards aren’t taught that, However, a lifeguard knows the ocean, how to navigate through surf, keep a bow into a wave, ride a swell. When it comes to the ocean, it’s all training and experience. Otherwise, it can be dangerous. Thrilling, but dangerous.”

– David Funk, certified coastal rowing coach and Ventnor Beach Patrol captain, South Jersey Lifeguard Championships (Nine time champion).
