Our ripper Nipper, Jayke
On Easter Sunday, Jayke Menefy was a day shy of turning 13. After spending the day surfing with his family at Double Island Point, he was on his way home when his dad noticed a group of people in distress at the water’s edge near unpatrolled Teewah Beach.
After jumping out of the car, they were told a man was stuck in a massive rip out to sea. The ocean was rough, and the conditions were extremely messy. No one in the group could swim, they were told, and neither could the man.
Knowing Jayke was very confident in the surf, his mum Nicole sent him to grab his board to help the stranded man. Jayke expertly paddled out through the treacherous conditions and helped the man onto his board, but the man was too exhausted to help Jayke paddle back.
Jayke waited with the man on his board until further help arrived in the form of two members of the public with boogie boards. Queensland Police Service also arrived on the scene, and were certain if not for Jayke’s confidence and level headedness, the man would have drowned. Click here for the Channel 7 interview.
