Bondi is a party town, and her night of nights is New Year's Eve. 15,000 revellers descend on the beach front for the Shore Thing Concert. At 5am the following morning lifeguards arrive to deal with the drunk, drug-affected, and disoriented, intent on going for a swim. There are 2 thousand people on the beach and not a towel in sight. The lack of swimming attire is of little concern to many who strip naked and welcome in the new year with a bit of skinny dipping. Mid-morning an emergency call comes in that a boat is taking water at the base of cliffs north of Bondi. Rushing there on the jetski Mouse and Ben arrive to find 23 year old Anthony in a hand built boat he bought on Ebay for two dollars and fifty-five cents. New Year's Eve was his maiden voyage - watching fire works in the harbour, but things went wrong when he decided to head for open water. Partygoers continue to swim as Deano does his best to persuade them to stay on dry land. Next a call comes in alerting lifeguards to a boy with a broken leg in the skate bowl. The steep sides of the bowl are more than ambulance officers are prepared to deal with, so lifeguards are left to move the clearly distressed 15 year old patient up to flat ground. As the end of the day comes to a close, a rescue of a different kind gets underway. A car is bogged behind the surf club, so Harries enlists the lifeguard buggies to pull it out of the mud, with the support of an unlikely team of helpers. Bondi ushers in the new year with the weird and wonderful, plus a few traps for unsuspecting visitors.

Just 16 years of age, Coffs Harbour trainee-lifeguard Temika Wright continues her exchange program at Bondi. Deano sees an opportunity to test the youngster’s skills when he sends her out for a boy and girl caught in a rip at North Bondi. Quick to get there on the rescue board, the trainee is unsure of what to do next, and makes a decision that could have tragic consequences. Lifeguards know they must take Temika into the fold and decide to include her in routine fitness training. But she’s unsure of what to do when invited to compete in the annual Lifeguard Iron Man Race. It’s the pinnacle event for an all-male squad. The temporary rookie isn’t relishing the opportunity to compete, especially when the surf is forecast to reach over 3 metres. The race starts with a run between Bondi and Tamarama beaches, then a swim around a very dangerous cliff face to Bronte Beach, followed by a board paddle back to Bondi. All is going to plan in the handicap event until the relentless surf at Bronte brings the board paddle to a virtual standstill. Whoever breaks through will likely win, but for now most lifeguards are just struggling to survive. The threat of injury is constant, but becomes a dramatic reality when lifeguard Ben Sutherland crawls ashore barely conscious. Struck in the head by a competitors board he is unable to see in one eye and fears his jaw is broken. An ambulance is called and lifeguards attend to with one of their own for the first time. It’s the most difficult and intense Iron man race in lifeguard memory
