Starting lifeguard pay is $12.00/HR + 2% of the revenue generated from your weekly chair rentals.  First year guards can expect to make between $800 and $1000 for a 7 day work week.  Checks are distributed weekly, usually Wednesdays before Surf School (training).

Cash tips are commonly awarded by renters, typically $5-20 for a weekly rental, usually given out at the beginning or end of the week. Tips can also be awarded at random by beach goers that appreciate your day to day work.



JBS handbook illustrates our standard operating procedures, as well as other necessary information that will be beneficial to you. We encourage you to become familiar with the information in the handbook. This information will be covered again throughout your initial rookie training program.
