Sam Atkins from Brunswick Surf Life Saving Club is setting out to become the first life saver to patrol all the 129 state clubs in NSW.

Inspired by Andy Cross, who surfed all those beaches, Sam says his motivation comes from wanting to encourage surf life savers to patrol with neighbouring clubs to learn and gain experience from each other. He also wants to encourage junior life savers to take on committee roles within their own clubs.
