I was lucky enough to have Tom Thayer train me as a San Diego Lifeguard for thirteen years – up until he retired. I’ve always had the utmost respect for Tom, and he’s been incredibly influential in not only my lifeguarding profession, but in many other aspects of my life. Tom cleared up a lot of mysteries for me in my younger years, and has only grown as an inspiration over time.
Tom truly is a hometown legend, and it’s so cool that Cyrus over at Korduroy.TV recognized it and went out of his way to make this great reel.
Side note – Tom has saved hundreds of lives during his admirable career as a lifeguard, and many of those rescues involved jeopardizing his own well being in the process. So, Tom is not only a legend, but also a hero.
