Ask a surf lifesaver for safety advice
Our surf lifesavers are highly trained and very knowledgeable about beach safety and conditions. When you arrive at the beach, look for and identify the lifesavers and lifeguards. Feel free to ask them about the day’s conditions, as well any additional beach safety advice they might have for that specific beach – because every beach is different.
Swim with a friend
Not only is swimming with a friend (or family member) a fun way to enjoy the beach, it is also very sensible. While you’re swimming together, you can keep an eye out for each other, and if further assistance is required, one person could call or go for help. If everyone swimming together knows their own limits, it’s a good idea to share this with those around you so you can all stay within these.
