Wamberal Member Crowned Top Assessor

It’s been a busy but productive summer on the beach for Wamberal’s Ramzy Fawzy who ended the 2016/17 with the title of NSW Assessor of the year.

Ramzy has been a patrolling lifesaver at his club Wamberal since 1989, and has long been involved in all aspects of Surf Life Saving but has a particular interest in the educational side of the movement.

His busy summer commenced by running all the proficiencies at the Central Coast pre-season meeting which included upgrading trainers, assessors, and facilitators in A.R.T.C and spinal management courses.

Additionally he also took all the Rescue Water Craft operators through their pre-season requirements to ensure they were proficient and ready to go once the season started.

He assessed two Gold Medallion and three SMAR courses continuing his long association as an assessor and helping to improve the skills and abilities of lifesavers everywhere.

“I love what I do so it speaks for itself. Surf Life Saving is my life; I didn’t start until I was 30. My kids started me there. They left and I’m still there and what gives me the greatest pleasure is seeing people develop their skills and confidence in the water,” Ramzy Fawzy said.

Ramzy is the Branch District Assessor a position that includes mentoring 5 Central Coast clubs stretching from Shelly Beach to Avoca.

“Being born in Egypt what I would like to is to educate Egyptians about water safety and Surf Life Saving. We get a lot of tourists on the Central Coast who don’t know much so it would be good to be able to push that out.”

With over 25 years assessing experience, Ramzy is the longest serving assessor on the Central Coast and is well respected in the area.

The 2017 SLSNSW Awards of Excellence are proudly presented by Stramit Building Products. Over 300 of Surf Life Saving’s most outstanding lifesavers, athletes, educators, coaches, and administrators from around the state gathered at Sydney’s iconic The Hilton Hotel to celebrate the season that was.
