Surfman USCG LifeBoatSailors

I’m Surfman 374 @ CAPE D Ilwaco, Wa is where I certified my Dream was to always be a Surfman at Cape D growing up seeing the surf and the rescues it’s all I ever wanted to do

The Original Beach Rescue

So I did it…. along with so many others only a handful are certified each year probably like 5-10 I believe is what was the average

From 1991-1997 Archery Elk hunting I would watch them train from the mountains you could see them in the surf you would here the stories of shipwrecks and know commercial fishing families whom have lost many to her cold waters I remember telling my dad I wanna be a Surfman they laughed at me in BootCamp said good luck! And then sent me to Port Clarence, Nome Alaska a Dang LORAN Station the last of the 1350’s you could actually see Russia from the top it was 1350’ Tall – 1991-97 was good times chasing bulls bears and Blacktails with my bow
