Spreading the surf lifesaving word is something that Mvubu and many lifesavers in Durban are passionate about and he feels that an event of this calibre and excitement is the perfect opportunity to showcase an exciting angle to the sport. ?
"I got involved in lifesaving about six years ago when I started swimming in Chesterville. We were then introduced to Marine Surf Lifesaving Club and it has just continued from there," Mvubu, a Marine SLC member, said. ?
"We really want to try and get youngsters involved and grow the profile of the sport that we love so much so having such an exciting event in the heart of the Durban beachfront is going to be great exposure."??
"We do a bit of training when we are not busy at work but my main training sessions in the build-up to the Red Bull Beach Patrol have been after work. ?
"When I'm not training for an event I like to head home and just relax after work - I don't get too much time to do that so when I can, I really enjoy it," a laid back Mvubu added. ??"The iron man is my favourite event and I did well in that event at the national lifesaving champs last year so I am confident that I can do well again at the Beach Patrol," he added assertively. ?
