7960735856?profile=originalWhen rough seas kicked up by Tropical Storm Cindy made it impossible to offer entry-level instruction

as part of the ‘World’s Largest Swimming Lesson,’ Boynton Beach lifeguards decided to give young swimmers

a chance to try surfing and provided education about rip currents. The WLSL event was held globally to help

prevent drowning, the second-leading cause of injury-related deaths among children aged 1-14. Here, lifeguard

Tyler Russell assists 6-year-old Owen Finn as he tries out a surfboard.

Other swim and surf classes are offered during the summer.
