A team of Aussie lifeguards from Half Moon Bay SLSC, of Melbourne, Victoria, AUSTRALIA will be challenging the rest of the field this Saturday nite at Hermosa Beach Pier for the 2011 Taplin Relay.
At tonite's Medal of Valor dinner at Seaside Lagoon in Redondo Beach, Calif., the Aussie team was in attendance as guests of our LACo Lifeguard Dept. and LACOLA and the International Surf Festival.

We've included a few photos we snapped of the Aussie team:
