Become a Lifeguard

Join our team of professional lifeguards! Be part of the team that helps keep our beaches safe, gain valuable experience on a great team, and spend your work days on the beach. We offer specialized training and even housing for our lifeguards. Spend your summer as a Lack’s Beach Service Lifeguard!

How to Rent

Put your feet up and stay awhile! Seriously. Rent one of our chairs and an umbrella to enjoy the best beach views in comfort. Instead of buying and setting up your own chairs and umbrella, see one of our beach attendants to rent ours. You can rent by the day or the week – and always have a spot on the beach reserved just for you!

Become an Attendant

Join our team of professional beach attendants! Customer service and overall beach safety are our priority. If you want to spend your day helping families make their vacations better and safer, spend your summer as a Lack’s Beach Service Beach Attendant.

Find a Spot

From March until October, you can find us watching over almost 10 miles of beach in Myrtle Beach from the Springmaid Pier to the very North end of Myrtle Beach by the Marriott and Ocean Club.

Saving Lives Since 1974

Originally Vernon’s Beach Service, George Lack took over the company in 1979 and grew the team to become the largest beach service in Myrtle Beach. We’ve worked with thousands of amazing lifeguards over the years and love seeing familiar faces year after year!


Are you on the beach all year round?

You can find us on the beach from March until October. Our peak season is Memorial Day to Labor Day.

How do I rent the chairs and umbrellas?

Any of our beach attendants can assist you with the chair and umbrella rentals right on the beach. Rentals are available 7 days a week.

Are your lifeguards certified?

Absolutely! Safety is our first priority!

Every lifeguard must currently hold certifications of CPR for the Professional Rescuer, Lifeguarding, and First Aid. Every Rookie Lifeguard goes through Rookie School where they are trained by experienced managers, Police Officers, Beach Patrol, Emergency Medical Services and National Weather Service professionals. Even our Beach Attendants are First AID and CPR certified.

Lifeguards also attend Surf School EVERY WEEK to train on different topics to keep them sharp and aware every day.

How long can we rent the chairs?

You can rent the chairs and umbrellas for a day or the entire week of your vacation!

Where can I find one of your lifeguards?

We guard about 10 miles of beach from Springmaid Pier to the Marriott and Ocean Club. Check out our map to find the Lack’s Beach Services locations!

Are there any important rules or laws I should know for the beach?

We’re glad you asked! We do our best to make sure everyone is following the Myrtle Beach city rules and regulations. Check out the rules and regulations most relevant to beachgoers.

Myrtle Beach Rules and Regulations

Our lifeguards (and beach attendants) are required to ensure that all beachgoers are following the Myrtle Beach and Horry County rules and regulations.
