About Us

The late Newport Beach Lifeguard Captain Buddy Belshe and Lieutenant Logan Lockabey created the Newport Pier to Pier Swim in 1976 thru the NBOLA at the urging of Councilwoman Evelyn Hart to help celebrate the United States Bicentennial.

Jim and Nadine Turner created the Corona Del Mar Don Burns 1 Mile Swim thru the NBOLA in 1988 at the suggestion of the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce as part of the Newport SeaFest. Members of the Lifeguard Association now carry on this legacy and tradition set forth.

The Newport Beach Ocean Lifeguard Association raises funds to support an annual Newport Beach Lifeguard college scholarship as well as support worthwhile activities of the Newport Beach Lifeguards.
