Head Bondi lifeguard Bruce 'Hoppo' Hopkins has taken hit TV show Bondi Rescue to the next level opening Bondi Rescue HQ in North Bondi. 


The pitstop for health conscious beach lovers is just a sand's throw from the ocean and offers smoothies and juices in all the colours of the rainbow and some tasty eats - Açai Bowl anyone? - too. 

"I've been rescuing people for over 23 years now, educating the community on surf safety and living a healthy lifestyle, and the same philosophies apply here at Bondi Rescue HQ," says Hoppo. "I want to help people, particularly children, in considering healthier options when grabbing a drink or bite at the beach."

I stopped in for a Ben Buckler smoothie (banana, pineapple, mango, coconut water and chia seeds) today and sucked it down while taking in the killer view of Bondi Beach that was basking under yet another big blue umbrella summer day. 


Aaah, holidays!
