Trent Maxwell or ‘Lifeguard Maxi’ started life-guarding at Bondi Beach 11 years ago, as a 16-year-old trainee. His inspiring lifeguard career has been well documented on Channel 10’s Bondi Rescue.
But what you maybe didn’t know about Maxi, is that he’s a fireman too. It’s in his blood – and was always his childhood dream. Maxi is helping save lives in a different way now, with his educational water safety program: Live, Learn, Survive.
Trent was a guest on Sam & Duncan’s Amazing People podcast. He chatted about his experience being on Bondi Rescue, about his water safety program—and about some of the gnarliest rescues he’s been involved in, both in the surf, and in life-threatening fires.
