Lincoln Teagle grew up in Nhulunbuy, Northern Territory and is a face well recognised around his town. He has been associated with the Gove Peninsula Surf Life Saving Club (GPSLSC) for many years. He was a GPSLSC Nipper before moving to SA, and became a regular patrolling surf lifesaver when returning to Gove as a 16yr old. He competes yearly at the Northern Territory State Surf Life Saving Championships (NT Titles), and volunteers for fundraising activities – bbq duties etc.
He is an infectiously positive and friendly individual who has a passion for his music, which he expresses as a volunteer DJ at the local radio station. He is more than happy to combine his talents with his participation in the surf club, and often provides music for functions through the surf club, including at NT titles in 2017.
Since attaining his drivers licence he has helped out his father Brian, who probably deserves part of Lincoln’s praise, who drove him from one end of town to the other so he could participate with the club for so many years.
Lincoln was awarded GPSLSC youth volunteer of the year due to his commitment to the club, and for the enthusiasm while carrying out lifesaving duties.
