Are you going for a day out by the sea-side? Do you know what the lifeguards flags mean?
- Red and yellow flags indicate the area patrolled by lifeguards. These are the safest areas to swim, bodyboard and use inflatables.
- Black and white chequered flags indicate an area zoned by lifeguards for use of watercraft such as surfboards and kayaks. Never swim or bodyboard in these areas.
- The red flag indicates danger. NEVER enter the water when the red flag is flying, under any circumstances.
- The orange windsock indicates offshore wind conditions. You should NEVER use an inflatable when the sock is flying.
