Table 1

Table 1 shows the average day for a lifeguard, but times could vary depending on the size and demand of your stand. During the day you can take two 15 minute breaks, one before lunch and one after lunch. In order to take a break, the two guards to both sides of your stand must be on the beach. You cannot leave the beach if these guards are not here. You can “10-25” (meet halfway between stands to talk to your border guard) once before lunch and once after lunch, never during lunches, and never for extended periods of time. Additional breaks are permitted per management approval if circumstances warrant.
