From a young age and a football crazy family, it was only natural for Hugan Adonis to gravitate toward sports. With a great love for children, Hugan went on to coach football in the Hout Bay community for several years. Coupled with a love for sport and the ocean, Hugan joined the Hout Bay Surf Lifesaving club back in 2008 as a nipper.
In 2020, Hugan jumped at the opportunity to join the newly formed Hout Bay Lifesaving Club and Oceans Alive Conservation Trust where he managed to complete several courses including a Life Guard Award, First Aid Level 1&2, Beach and Lifesaving Skills, Personal Safety and Survival Skills at sea. It was at Oceans Alive that Hugan and Wendy met. Working well together, this lead to a special bond and trust, and Hugan participating in a extensive training program with Wendy to become a swimming coach. He is now an Internationally Certified (STA) Learn-To-Swim coach.
