Longtime Zuma Beach lifeguard Ed Heinrich recently won six gold medals in his age group at the National Lifeguard Championships in Daytona Beach, Florida. 

He took gold in the run-swim-run, ironman, board race, ironguard, surf race and surf ski competitions.

He was even named an official “Baywatch Hero,” in recognition of his achievements and as part of a promotion for the extended version 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray Combo Pack release of the “Baywatch” movie with Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson.
