Shore Beach Service

If you have visited Hilton Head Island’s beaches, you are probably familiar with Shore Beach Service. We are on the beach in the lifeguard highchairs, under the red beach patrol umbrellas, or driving the red beach patrol vehicles. If you are new to the island, let us introduce ourselves and help you have a great vacation!

Hilton Head Island is blessed with some of the safest waters on the east coast, as gentle sloping beaches and offshore sandbars generally create calm surf conditions. However, always be cautious in the ocean and please follow our beach safety tips and beach rules to ensure a safe and enjoyable day.

How did you hear about SBS?  My dad was a guard at SBS in the early 80s and always spoke fondly of his time there.

How many years did you work for SBS (what years)? Summer of 2009.

Had you been to HHI before SBS? Yes! I traveled there with my family growing up, and I performed there in high-school with an orchestra.

What sports did you play? I swam and played basketball.

What jobs have you had since SBS? Directly after college, I co-created the first National Youth Orchestra in Belize. I moved to New York City afterwards and have performed as a violinist classically, as well as in a number of genres. I appear on "Saturday Night Live," "The Late Show with Colbert," "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon," and "Good Morning America" frequently with artists like Twenty One Pilots, Halsey, Andrea Bocelli, and David Guetta, and I recently played as part of Stevie Wonder's tour. I am a violin sub in the pit of Hamilton: An American Musical. I also teach seventeen students privately each week!
