Personal Safety Staying with parents and how to attract attention
Beach Awareness Understand some types of animals that we share the beach with
Patrol Identify Lifesavers as people who can help
Sun Safety Understand basic principles, wear a hat, sunscreen
Water Confidence Allow water to wash over legs, jump waves

An important note for parents and guardians SurfBabies requires parent/guardian participation in the class and for you to remain with your child at all times. Be sure to dress appropriately for this involvement! Please make alternative arrangements for the supervision of other children/siblings during the class. If conditions are unsuitable for swimming, the class will still proceed with the focus being on beach and surf awareness activities.
