Beautiful morning at Boobys Bay. Its pretty epic to be able to get out a little bit again.
We are now open for private group surf lessons. There is no better classroom than the beach, there’s so much to learn and experience its never ending.
Great news this morning, @surfingengland #surfschools can now open for small group lessons. Right now I think we are going to stick to 1on1 and private groups and holidays still aren’t allowed so its people living locally and day trippers. I’ll be spending today updating the website and contacting customers. Also a big thank you to everyone who’s bought t-shirt and hoodies this year, its really helped out.
Its been a big week/10 days here at the surf school. While trying to cope with the idea of shielding now lasting for an unspecified amount of time, tragedy on our beaches followed by a amazing community response and the hope of surf schools starting up in a small capacity soon. So I’ve been writing new operating procedures and risk assessments to get us up and going as soon as the advise from @surfingengland allows because in this summer of no lifeguards the more people who can learn about being safe on the coast and in the sea the better.
All the while it looks like liz has been working from home quite successfully.
RNLI beach lifeguards are on #constantinebay from today. There is also a massive community effort going on to try and keep other beaches safe. Please remember to respect and keep 2 meters distance. This is a big change for everyone and the better it works the safer everyone will be. Respect the sea, no one is bigger, better or stronger than the ocean so take it easy.
Reports are the surf is still a good size, powerful and very rippy today especially on #constantinebay #treyarnonbay and the exposed beaches. There is no lifeguard cover on any of the beaches this week. I am still shielding and haven’t left the house in 10 weeks so I don’t know any of the ins and outs but someone lost their life swimming at treyarnon yesterday and atleast 2 people put their lives at risk to try and save them. My advice would be if you do not spend all year going in the sea don’t go in this week even knee deep at constantine can be very dangerous, take it from someone who has almost drown before there, me!
After yesterday’s amazing weather the surf is forecast to pick up and with spring tides and no lifeguards please take care if you are visiting the beach please think of other people and think of the consequences of your actions, for every person who gets in trouble in the sea there will be a team of people who who will be putting themselves in danger to help. I always think the best advice we give in surf lessons is to watch the surf before going in, the longer the better, identify whats going on and make a plan, even better make a plan A, B and C and take care. Ps don’t poo in the sand dunes.
