Across the summer many thousands of people flock to Auckland's wild west coast beach Piha, with its awesome surf and stunning scenery. But this beauty comes with danger - rip currents and holes that lie in wait to carry unsuspecting swimmers out to sea.
The series showcases the everyday people who are prepared to give up their spare time to patrol the most dangerous beach in New Zealand. The volunteer lifeguards are the everyday heroes - each one prepared to put their own life in danger to help others.
Piha Rescue is packed with big waves and mass rescues - with
cameras on board the boats, rescue boards, and covering the
beach. The series captures the real drama that takes place
over the Piha Surf Life Saving Club's patrol season.
Relive the action and human drama with this selection of compelling episodes from TV ONE's hugely popular series.
'I thought I was going to die, everything went black from somewhere I felt myself being thrown into the rescue boat, I can't thank the lifeguards enough for saving my life' (Member of the public rescued by Piha Lifeguards)
