Andrew ‘Reidy’ Reid

Andrew ‘Reidy’ Reid

Australian Lifeguard

Andrew ‘Reidy’ Reid is best known for saving lives on the hit TV series Bondi Rescue. Born and bred in Bondi, Reidy wasn’t a surfing natural, but rather struggled with his weight as a teen. At age 19 and tipping the scales at over 100 kilos, he decided to turn his life around. Changing his eating habits and exercising, he shed the weight to become a lifeguard on Australia’s busiest beach.
