For some, summer is all about relaxation, but for lifeguards across the country this is the busiest time of the year.

So busy that sometimes a day on patrol means saving 27 people in 10 minutes.

That's what happened on Sumner beach in December - and the Surf Lifesaving crew there have won an award for their efforts.

Kate Suter is part of the Sumner Surf Lifesaving Club.

She speaks to Corin Dann.
