Mike Brousard: Ocean Lifeguards – Sentinels of the Coastline

Join Mike Brousard, the legendary ocean lifeguard, rescue boat operator, lifeguard chief and now acclaimed author, as he takes us on a spellbinding journey through the history and evolution of lifesaving on the California coast.

A master storyteller, Mike is guaranteed to captivate his audience with true-life adventures of the unsung heroes of the coast. From the wild and wooly days when lifeguards were expected to paddle 100 pound rescue boards or row dory boats through raging surf, trade blows with drunken roustabouts, and rescue unsuspecting swimmers from certain death, to the modern, sophisticated and professional lifeguard operations of today, Mike will provide an engaging talk that chronicles the story of all of California’s Ocean Lifeguards.

All members and donors welcome! Space is limited.
