If you are exercising outside, try to keep a 2 metre distance from people who are not in your bubble.

The most important thing is to stay safe and stay close to home.
Go to your local park or beach, not your favourite one.
You cannot stay overnight at your bach or holiday home.

If you are experienced you can do more activities. These include:

  • Kiting / Surfing /  Sup / Windsurf / Foil
    — if you are an experienced , you can go to your local break, beach or spot.
    If you are NOT experienced,-  do not out.
    If it is big and thunderous,-  do not go out.
    If it is gusty & wild,  – do not go out.
  • Stay within 200 metres from shore if you are going out . Don’t go further than you can swim.
  • Let people know when & where you are going, & report in when finished.
  • Don’t be a dick . You screw it up for everyone…
