Cody Simpson, 26, posed for steamy shirtless snaps during a beach safety demonstration alongside Surf Life Saving Australia lifesavers in Gold Coast Australia on March 15.

Simpson shared the photos of the free beach safety demo on Instagram, along with a lengthy captain about the event and certain safety measures.


“What if you got caught in a rip current? We’ve had a deadly summer on Aussie beaches and 43% of coastal drowning deaths were from rips. That’s why I teamed up with the legends at @slsaustralia and @lifesaversaustralia to host a free beach safety demo at one of my favourite Gold Coast beaches,” Simpson wrote and advised his followers that they “can avoid rips by swimming at a patrolled beach between the red and yellow flags. If you get caught in a rip, stay calm, float, seek help, swim parallel to the beach.

In a second Instagram post for the same event, Simpson warned his followers to “Stay safe in the ocean, swim between the flags.”

“80% of beach drownings in Australia last summer were men and 100% occurred outside patrolled areas. I’m hoping to turn the tides by raising awareness for beach and water safety with @slsaustralia and @lifesaversaustralia,” he concluded.
