No country for young lifeguards

On paper, it sounds like a pretty sweet gig. In reality, it’s pretty good, too – a fat salary to work outdoors half the year surrounded by girls in bikinis on some of the country’s most beautiful beaches.

Nonetheless, with the summer bathing season upon us, what feels like annual slowdown by lifeguards is also in full force, making the beaches more dangerous, and perhaps a bit quieter as the lifeguard station loudspeakers go silent at 2 p.m. rather than 6 p.m. when beaches are supposed to close.
